Air Traffic

This week’s blog is written by Hannah, a Bucktails, Brookies, and Drummers alumni, and long-time Monthly Correspondent. She writes about a topic we don’t think about often when considering air travel: that we are sharing the friendly skies with our avian neighbors, and need to account for being in their airspace when we fly.

The Allegheny Front Hawk Watch

This week’s post is written by Peter, a monthly blog correspondent and Bucktails and Ursids alumni.  He writes about keeping an “eagle eye” out for migrating raptors, helping local biologists record important data that they can use to monitor the charismatic birds that fly by each year!

The Bald Eagle, an American Success Story

This week, Eli, a Brookies and Ursids alumni, shares with us more of his “Naturalist’s Notes.” He writes about our national bird, and their recovery after a significant population crash. His original photos of this majestic bird are truly stunning!

This week’s blog is written by Lakin, an Ursids alumni, who got a whiff of a stinky insect and braved its stench to find out more. She investigated the “stink bug” and gives us all the details in her blog post, explaining why we see a sudden influx of stink bugs when the weather turns cool outside! What a stinky situation!

This new research in window glass has the potential to greatly reduce bird/glass impacts by making the glass more visible to bird in flight.
