ALIENS AMONG US- THE HISTORY OF NON-NATIVE BIRDS IN MONTANA
November 9 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PMfree
Dave Manual will be the speaker at the November 9 meeting. Did you know there are 271 bird species breeding in Montana? An additional 169 species are non-breeding transients. There are 14 non-native breeding species, of which five are game species. Our program for November will be given on Zoom by FAS Board member, Dave Manuwal. He is originally from Indiana where he first became interested in birds. His first research when he was just out of high school, was on bird mortality at television transmitter towers. He also spent two summers at the Delta Waterfowl Research Station in Manitoba, Canada. After leaving Indiana, Dave came to Montana where he studied birds at the UM’s Lubrecht Experimental Forest northeast of Missoula. He went to California where he studied seabirds on the Farallon Islands. His research interests have been in seabird biology and forest bird ecology. Most of his professional career was spent on the faculty at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, College of the Environment, University of Washington. He conducted bird research in Oregon,
Washington, Alaska and Montana.
