Tuleyome talk will focus on the tricolored blackbird

UC Davis biologist and tricolored blackbird expert Bob Meese will give a talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 28, on Zoom about this interesting local bird, the challenges it faces and the science of monitoring this species.

365体育投注Tricolored blackbirds (Agelaius tricolor) look very much like the abundant and widespread red-winged blackbird, to which they are closely related, but they are a distinct and unique species with different behaviors.

365体育投注The tricolored blackbird is highly gregarious and breeds in colonies that historically numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Today, their entire population has declined to less than 200,000 and continues to decline.

365体育投注Participants must register for the Zoom meeting on the Tuleyome events website (be sure to include an email address) and download Zoom. (There is no need to create an account.) After registering, participants will be sent an email with the meeting ID and password. After the lecture, participants will be able to ask questions via Zoom’s chat feature.

This lecture is part of the free monthly “Nature and You” lecture series sponsored by Tuleyome.
