Whether traveling alone or in flocks, by day or by night, searching for prey or avoiding becoming prey, more than 5,000 species of birds manage annual roundtrip migrations of thousands of miles—and all without GPS. Discover the amazing world of bird migration with naturalist and author Scott Weidensaul. Learn how scientists study migration, the strategies employed to get from point “a” to point “b”, and the many conservation issues facing declining populations of migratory birds. Explore simple, effective ways we can help sustain our migrants, starting with planting gardens that support their seasonal travels. Be part of the solution!
Copies of Scott’s books, including his most recent, Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.
Snow date for this event is Sunday, February 21.
