Bird Study Group Meeting (May 2024)

May 1 @ 7:30 pm

Date: May 1, 2024

Time: 7:30PM

Presentation: Population trend analysis of common passerine migrants through Calgary – Results from over 25 years of banding by the Calgary Bird Banding Society at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary

In his talk Mathias will explain how bird banding data can be used to learn about population changes via trend analysis. He will present and discuss the results for the most commonly banded migrant bird species in Calgary.

Speaker Bio: Mathias Fenton is an Ecology and Biology instructor at Mount Royal University with a passion for birds and data analysis. He has been involved as a volunteer with the Calgary Bird Banding Society (CBBS) since 2012 after initially learning how to band birds during a summer job at Long Point Bird Observatory in Ontario. His interest in the collected data from migration monitoring conducted by CBBS at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary since 1995 led him to conduct and refine trend analysis to see how populations of the different bird species migrating through Calgary are changing over time.
