Many people enjoy watching and feeding birds, however in some cases birds can become a pest and in rare cases pose a threat to human health and safety. Many bird species are also becoming more common in urban areas which could contribute more conflicts between birds and humans. Conversely, with more birds coming into towns and cities it provides people the opportunity to landscape their yards to maximize them for birds. Join us for a Twitter chat on Nov. 16 from noon to 1 p.m. CT with ACES experts from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. Mike Ward, associate professor, and Jeff Brawn, professor and head, will answer your questions about Canada geese, hunting season, and their research findings on the topic.
