AUBURN — “The Patterns of Arrival of Maine Migratory Breeding Birds: Impacts of Climate Change” will be presented Monday, May 6, at the monthly meeting of the Stanton Bird Club.

The presentation will be given by Herb Wilson, professor of biology at Colby College. He will focus on the now 18-year-long data set on spring-time arrival of Maine migratory breeding birds.

His talk will be about the impact of hemispheric weather patterns, particularly the North Atlantic Oscillation, on arrival dates for migratory birds. He will also review the synchrony of arrival dates of birds with different foraging styles.

Wilson has been at Colby since 1990, where he teaches classes in evolution and diversity, ornithology, marine ecology, marine invertebrate zoology and winter ecology.

The Stanton meeting and Wilson’s talk will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Androscoggin Room at USM L/A, 55 Westminster St. The meeting is open to the public.
