Dr. Jackie Augustine, Associate Professor at The Ohio State University at Lima, has been studying the unique mating behaviors of wild birds for nearly two decades. Her current research utilizes robots and drones to study how males attract mates in greater and lesser prairie-chickens, two declining species known for their display behaviors. Dr. Augustine will talk about what fascinates her about prairie-chickens and share videos & robot demonstrations. Have a bird question you are dying to ask Dr. Augustine? Stay and join us for ´┐ŻAsk an Ornithologist´┐Ż from 3:00-4:00pm. Free, ages 10+.
