Factors Affecting Red and Green Macaw Nest Site Selection

 

Joel Owen, a graduate student at the University of Georgia, will share his Master of Science thesis work studying Red and Green Macaws in Brazil. These native parrots and other resident species are threatened by habitat loss due to deforestation etc. and their population is controlled by availability of suitable nesting sites. Joel will discuss the factors affecting nest site selection in Fazenda Boa Vista where the macaws nest in sandstone ridges.

 

5 Season's Brewery is conveniently located just south of I-285 at 5600 Roswell Road, NE #21 in Sandy Springs.  Plentiful free parking is available, and food and beverage will be available for purchase. The meeting room is immediately on the left as you enter.

Atlanta Audubon is pleased to partner with Chattahoochee Nature Center to bring you this opportunity to view the songbird documentary, "The Messenger." Director Su Rynard's film explores our deep-seated connection to birds and warns that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own. Winner of the Jackson Hole Conservation Film Festival's Best Conservation Film award this past September, The Messenger is an engaging, visually stunning, emotional journey that mixes its elegiac message with hopeful notes and unique glances into the influence of songbirds on our own expressions of the soul.
