The Migrating Birds of Bear Divide, with Dr. Ryan Terrill.
Zoom Evening Meeting, Tuesday, 7 March, 7:30 p.m.

Zoom waiting room opens 7:15 p.m.

Bear Divide, in the San Gabriel mountains, has been recently found to host spectacular morning flights of migratory birds in the spring. For the past 5 years, birders have been counting migratory birds at Bear Divide, and over the past three years, the Bear Divide Migration Count has been intensively surveying this location to learn more about this unique phenomenon. Join count organizer Ryan Terrill to hear about this site, what kinds of birds use it, and what has been learned so far about this fantastic bird migration location.

On the lookout.

Dr. Ryan S. Terrill grew up birding in California, and after graduating from U.C. Santa Cruz received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University, for his study of the evolution of molt strategies in birds. He is a co-author of the Field Guide to the Birds of Bolivia, and the recent description of the Inti Tanager [see below], a new genus and species of bird to science, as well as 24 other publications in peer-reviewed journals. He is active in the academic ornithology and the California birding communities, and has dedicated much of his past 5 springs to surveying morning flight of spring migrant birds at Bear divide.

Somehow the stunning Inti Tanager, now officially a new species, went unnoticed by birders and ornithologists visiting Peru and Bolivia over many decades. Daniel Lane
