Science Cafe: Secrets of the Birds
Wednesday, October 16, 2019
5:30-7:30 p.m.
At Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub, 318 South Main Street, Ann Arbor

Hidden in the feathers of museum specimens of birds is information on the air quality of past decades - very detailed information. These specimens also contain evidence of the impacts of recent climate change on birds. What do these birds have to say? Join Shane DuBay and Ben Winger of the U-M Museum of Zoology to discuss what bird specimens can tell us about air quality, climate change impacts, and what we can all do to help rapidly declining bird populations now.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current research topics with experts in an informal setting. Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.; program 6:00-7:30 p.m. Seating is limited—come early.

Sponsored by Andrea and Dave Scott
