The Frankfort Audubon Chapter invites the public to attend a program at 6:00 PM Jan. 26, 2010, at Salato Wildlife Education Center. Hear about "Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons in Kentucky, Past and Present." The program is presented by Kate Heyden, avian biologist with the KY Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
Ms. Heyden will relay the status of the bald eagles and peregrine falcons in Kentucky. Attendees will learn about progress to protect and preserve bald eagle and peregrine falcon populations in Kentucky and throughout the nation. In this presentation, hear about eagle and falcon numbers, their history, ecology, and eagle viewing opportunities and see a spectacular slide show.
Additionally, Ms. Heyden is currently promoting participation in the 2010 Rusty Blackbird Hotspot Blitz. The Rusty Blackbird is a species of greatest conservation need in Kentucky and on the Audubon bird watchlist. The hotspot blitz is greatly helping biologists to understand more about this species. The blitz is being promoted via the Kentucky Ornithology Society and details follow.
