NORTHERN CARDINALS

Date: February 1, 2020

Time: 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Location: Wild Birds Unlimited – 46400 Lexington Village, Lexington Park, Maryland 20653

Details: Northern Cardinals, one of the most popular and easily recognized bird species in the eastern United States, have a wonderful and interesting natural history that has captivated many bird watchers and scientists alike. Dr. Jodie Jawor has worked with Northern Cardinals in their natural environments for 20 years investigating what that beautiful red plumage means to other cardinals, how hormones like testosterone impact their behavior, variation in territory defense, female behavior during nest defense, and parental care behaviors shown by both sexes. Dr. Jawor will discuss the natural history of cardinals interspersed with her research findings from work done with cardinal populations in Ohio, Indiana, and Mississippi. Come hear about one of the most popular birds at the bird feeder and get the inside scoop on their behaviors and daily activities.

Dr. Jawor received her doctoral degree at The University of Dayton and was an assistant and associate professor of Biology at the University of Southern Mississippi. Now a program director at the National Science Foundation Dr. Jawor still performs research with Northern Cardinals here in the Maryland area.
