      Tracking Birds across the Great Lakes through Motus Technology

      6:00pm Doors open6:30pm Presentation Learn all about a new technology that allows researchers to track the movements of birds and other migratory animals across states and continents. Motus uses tiny transmitters called “NanoTags” which are attached to birds and their movements are then recorded by a network of Motus radio towers. Bill Mueller and Stephanie Beilke will discuss what Motus is, how it’s being used (including for a new Black Tern project led by Audubon Great Lakes in Michigan) and how it relies on a special network of towers and collaborators. Also learn about how you can help us by growing the Motus network in the Western Great Lakes. Presented by Bill Mueller, Director of Western Great Lakes Bird & Bat Observatory andStephanie Beilke, Conservation Science Associate with Audubon Great Lakes Admission for this event is free, but registration is required as seating is limited. Registration includes free admission to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum starting at 6pm, with the evening's presentation beginning at 6:30pm.
