Swallows in MassachusettsHow You Can Help

Mara Silver, Local swallow researcher and dedicated conservationist

Wednesday, November 15, 7pm- 8:30pm

Swallows are aerial insectivores, which means that they catch insects on the wing. Unfortunately, many species in this group are declining at an alarming rate. We dont know all the reasons why, but possibilities include habitat loss, climate change, pesticide use, and increasingly intense agricultural practices. Fortunately there are ways we can help these birds during their four-month breeding season with us. Mara will discuss the natural history of the swallows that breed in western Massachusetts and describe simple techniques she has used to increase breeding success at her study sites.
