The Story of Avian Wildlife Rehabilitation Datasets
“Nest was discovered in the exhaust manifold of a truck,” “bird stuck to a glue trap,” “caught by cat,” and “found flopping in a kiddie pool” are just a few examples of intake notes on birds sent to wildlife rehabilitation centers. As much as these intake notes tell the stories of individual birds, wildlife rehabilitation datasets tell the story of bird injury and mortality on the large scale. Join Michelle Duffy as she discusses her Master’s research on the topic of avian wildlife rehabilitation datasets. This talk will cover topics such as: What bird species are being admitted into wildlife rehabilitations? What are the most common injuries? And what you can do to mitigate these bird injuries.
