The presentation will be given by Jacob Drucker, a Ph.D. student in evolutionary biology and an ornithologist at the University of Chicago. The program will be available through Zoom. To attend the session, register at homewoodsciencecenter.org. The program will be recorded and available on the HSC website.

The Celebrate Urban Birds project is part of the H-F Citizen Science program. It calls on residents of all ages to help scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a unit of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, count birds in the community. The numbers will help investigators study how birds live and use open spaces in urban areas.

As part of the Celebrate Urban Birds project, staff at the Homewood Science Center will select a bird of the month. The wild turkey is the bird for November.
