Professor Bridget Stutchbury, a Canada Research Chair in Ecology and Conservation Biology and a professor in the Department of Biology in the Faculty of Science & Engineering, has studied migratory songbirds like the hooded warbler, purple martin, scarlet tanager and wood thrush. On April 9, the Stratford Beacon-Herald reported on a talk she is scheduled to give in Stratford on April 13.
Stutchbury will explain why so many species of songbirds are threatened by habitat loss and pesticides, how their songs are altered by human pollution and how people can make the world safer for songbirds.
Information about the Stratford event is available here.
Stutchbury officially launches her book April 29 , at 7:30pm at the Toronto Botanical Garden.
