Dr. Hoover’s presentation will highlight what birds have to tell us about how human activities, including habitat degradation, land conservation, and habitat restoration all affect bird populations. He will also highlight how long-term studies of birds in Illinois have given us new insight into some remarkable bird behaviors that include birds making decisions to return to “good” sites and move away from “bad” sites, as well as “mafia” and “farming” behavior in Brown-headed Cowbirds. He will also show how long-term bird research is providing new and more accurate information on life-expectancy and lifetime reproductive success in migratory warblers, and on the ability of birds to respond to global climate change.
