Coastal Georgia is a complex and ever changing landscape, filled with diverse birds and peoples, and where opportunities for collaborative research, monitoring, and engagement are abundant. Come join us and listen to Kim Savides, Georgia Audubon’s Sea Grant Fellow, talk about her new position on the Georgia Coast. From Prothonotary Warblers and Black Rosy-Finches to Painted Buntings and Chuck-wills-widows, follow along as Kim speaks about what inspired her to pursue a career centered around birds, the work she has done so far in coastal Georgia, and some interesting upcoming projects Georgia Audubon will be involved with this summer.
Kim has helped research bird populations throughout the country over the past eight years. She specializes in capturing and tagging birds to track the timing and routes of migration. Kim holds a B.S. in Wildlife Science from SUNY-ESF and successfully defended her M.S. in Ecology at Utah State University in December.
