Bryan Bedrosian of the Teton Raptor Center presents Beyond Borders, Bird Migrations To, From, and Through the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The talks in this series are free, and take place in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium. At this talk, Bedrosian discusses bird migration, with examples from the Greater Yellowstone Area, which include much of the data he has helped collect over the years.
About our speakerBryan Bedrosian is currently the research director for Teton Raptor Center, a research, educational, and rehabilitation non-profit in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He has been studying birds in the Greater Yellowstone region and the Great Plains for the past 15 years with a focus on raptors, corvids, and sage-grouse. His projects range from migration and spatial ecology, genetics studies, environmental contaminants, and bioacoustics. Bedrosian has been involved in movement studies from the beginning of GPS tracking birds, including designing the current method for GPS tracking sage-grouse. He continues to innovate when not in the field, and has designed and made available research tools like remote net launchers for capturing eagles and ravens, and an automated wildlife recording device. He has even designed his own GPS transmitters for his studies.
