May 2024 Banquet and Meeting

Tue, May 7, 6:00 pm
Blue Spruce County Park Lodge
Speaker: Nick Liadis, Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Description

This is our annual banquet meeting. Please bring a dish
to share and your own place settings.

Nick Liadis is an avian conservation biologist based in Pittsburgh. His work takes him across the human landscape gradient into urban, suburban, and rural areas to better understand how birds coexist with humans. Trained as an architect, he became involved in bird conservation by researching bird-window collisions. He founded Bird Lab, a non-profit dedicated to studying and implementing solutions to human-related sources of avian mortality, particularly within cities.

Nick has pioneered a novel approach to architecture by integrating his deep interest in the natural world, especially birdlife. Central to his cross-disciplinary work is resolving conflicts between the natural and built environments. Other research interests of his include how cities affect avian migration and how migratory birds utilize urban and suburban habitats.

With research and teaching appointments from California to Pennsylvania, Nick has gained significant insight into the challenges birds face nationwide. His unique perspective focuses on promoting healthy landscapes across the various ecosystems birds traverse during migration, from cities to forests.


Nick's talk title is "Studying Migration: Bird Banding Across a Landscape Gradient."
