Of Birds and Beeches: Wood Thrush Productivity and Management at Rockefeller State 
Park Preserve
Lenoir Nature Preserve
7:00 Refreshments, 7:30 Program
Even if we can’t identify it by name, many of us ae familiar with the haunting flute-like song of 
The wood thrush. Rockefeller State Park has a breeding population of this declining migratory 
species. How might we better manage for their breeding success? Dr. Elijah Goodwin will 
present preliminary results from his first two years of research. What have we learned so far 
from the wood thrushes, what can they tell us about the health of our forest, and where do
we go from here?
Presenter: Elijah Goodwin, Owner/ Photographer/Researcher/Educator for Whimbrel Nature
