Who feeds wild birds? How does it impact birds and people? Dr. Dayer will describe how the social sciences are advancing the understanding of human dimensions of bird conservation with a focus on bird feeding. She will shed new light on how people in the US feed birds, what motivates this behavior, and what actions they take to manage predators and disease at feeders. She will address how these interactions between birds and the people who feed them may impact human well-being and bird populations. She will close by sharing resources for responsible bird-feeding.
