Program: Conservation status of the endangered Tricolored Blackbird

Bob Meese has recently retired from the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at U.C. Davis after a 23 year career. He has worked with Tricolored Blackbirds for 19 years and has banded over 107,000 of these threatened birds. Bob is actively involved with local efforts to conserve the species on private ranches. His talk will focus on colony detection and monitoring during the breeding season to estimate the success of birds breeding in the San Joaquin and lower Sacramento Valleys. He will also briefly summarize what he has learned from his banding experience.
