Environmental Science & Ecology Research Scientist Interviewed by WROC-TV

Environmental Science and Ecology Research Scientist, Greg Lawrence, was interviewed last week by Christine Gregory from WROC-TV about warmer weather effects on bird migration patterns in Western New York.

Greg discussed how warmer weather in Western New York is leading to earlier arrival and later departure times for migratory birds and also allowing some species to overwinter in larger numbers. He also discussed how these changes can alter birds’ timing with main food sources and how extreme weather events on top of changing migration patterns can potentially be catastrophic to some species in the region.
