Here's what the Chattanooga area has to offer this week.
With its Visitor Center under renovation, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithica, New York, is going virtual for its Migration Celebration, hosting three free webinars to mark the annual southward journey of billions of birds. At noon on Sept. 13, a panel of experts will share insights from their research and how their work provides an understanding of how to better protect birds during the precarious ritual of migration. At 7 p.m. Sept. 14, the Merlin Bird ID app developed by the Cornell Lab will be put to the test in a bird identification trivia game. At noon Sept. 19 is a Q&A with an ornithologist about what triggers migration, how birds navigate and what challenges they encounter. Questions may be submitted with registration or live during the webinar. Register for the webinars at birds.cornell.edu/home/visit/migration-celebration.
