Night Migration From the Empire State Building: Are        Skyscrapers Killing 
Our Birds?
Dr. DeCandido will speak on the night migration of birds        and how their 
collisions with some of the famous landmarks of New York        informed 
scientists on how birds migrate. He will discuss  the history of        birds 
flying into buildings at night, the differences that lighting can        make, 
the importance of weather and the observations he has made while        watching 
night migration. “Birding Bob”, as he is known in New York City,        
regularly leads bird walks in Central Park and is an urban ecologist and        
nature photographer. He has done research in raptor migration, American        
Kestrels, Eastern Screech Owls, and the flora of New York City.

All are welcome!
