Winter Speaker Series: The State of the Cuckoo

March 24, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm MDT

The State of the Cuckoo
Past, Present, and Future of One of Western Colorado’s Rarest and Most Elusive Birds
Presented by Adam Petry
What local migratory bird is one of the latest to arrive, one of the fastest to breed, and in danger of becoming endangered in the western U.S.? Hint: This riparian obligate “never hollers until the 4th day of July.” In this presentation, wildlife biologist Adam Petry will address the biology, habitat, and population status of the federally-threatened western yellow-billed cuckoo in Colorado as well as uncover historic and future efforts to survey and monitor the species in the Centennial state.
Adam Petry is a wildlife biologist and owner of Western Biology, LLC, based in Hotchkiss. He specializes in natural resource surveys in western Colorado and the western U.S., including mammal, plant, and avian inventories, raptor and migratory bird surveys, nest surveys, nest monitoring, and threatened and endangered species surveys. He leads the annual yellow-billed cuckoo survey protocol training workshop and advanced field workshop in western Colorado sponsored by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service Mountain-Prairie Region.
This series is co-sponsored by Western Slope Conservation Center, Delta County Libraries, and the Learning Council.
