Migration Madness: The Science of How Birds Move Around the Planet and How We Can Follow Them

  • Thursday, January 14, 2021
  • 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Billions of birds move around the planet twice every year, a phenomenon that has baffled and bewitched humans for as long as we’ve been paying attention. But 21st-century techniques and tools have enabled us to learn so much more about where birds go and what paths they take than we have ever known before. These journeys reveal unbelievable physical feats, from those of eagles and shorebirds, to the birds in your backyard. Join the American Birding Association’s Nate Swick as we explore this amazing phenomenon and the cool technology that allows us to follow along.

Each winter, thousands of migratory birds flock to our wildlife refuges in eastern North Carolina. Take a virtual field trip to learn more about one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in our state.

This program is part of the ecoEXPLORE citizen science project for North Carolina kids in grades K–8. All are welcome, and you will learn about how to join ecoEXPLORE during the program.
