The secret lives of Whip-poor-Wills and Common Nighthawks"

The secret lives of Whip-poor-wills and Common Nighthawks - With Greg Ran

Nightjars are amongst the most elusive birds, their camouflage makes them invisible during the day and their nocturnal habits make it so that very few have had a good look at one! Greg will present the two local nightjar species, their biology, conservation issues as well as some of his research on these species in Northwestern Ontario.

Gregory Rand has always been interested in biology and ecology. Fish, plants, insects were all of interest but in 2004 after being exposed to bird banding for the first time the birds took over! He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at McGill University in 2009 and is now pursuing his Master’s at Trent University looking. His current research focuses on the stress physiology of species at risk exposed to industrial noise.

Cost: $15 per lecture for BPQ members and $20 for non-members.
