Bird Research at Ellis Bird Farm
Myrna Pearman will provide a short history about Ellis Bird Farm, AB. Located in Central Alberta and established to honour the legacy of Charlie and Winnie Ellis, Ellis Bird Farm has grown into a world-class conservation, education and research centre. It is a heartening example of how industry, agriculture and wildlife conservation can partner successfully. She will describe some of their leading-edge bird research projects, including using webcam, GPS, geolocator and RFID technology to track bird migration, nest provisioning and conspecific nest visitation.
Please note: We are planning a bus trip to Ellis Bird Farm this summer.
