"While my interest in natural history has added very little to my sum of achievement,
it has added immeasurably to my sum of enjoyment in life." - Theodore Roosevelt
All Programs Held at the Cold Spring Harbor Library Unless Otherwise Noted
Please join us this evening as we hear from Jean-Francois Therrien, Ph.D., senior research biologist at Hawk Mountain in Kempton, Pennsylvania. He will share some of his fieldwork experience, and show the challenges and rewards of studying our favorite flying predators.
After completing an academic internship with Hawk Mountain in the fall of 2002, Dr. Therrien returned nine years later as Senior Research Biologist. He now leads the Sanctuary’s research projects in the Arctic and is also involved in several studies including the movement ecology of New World Vultures and Peregrine Falcons across the Americas. When he is not monitoring the long-term American kestrel nest-box program or helping with the migration counts from the Sanctuary’s lookout, JF can be found teaching statistics to Sanctuary trainees.
