BEGINNING TO BIRD: Bird Behaviors

February 8 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 pm

$8.00

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 10 AND UP

 

Ijams Beginning to Bird is designed for beginning birders to gain identification skills, learn about the complex life of birds, and have a chance to speak with other bird enthusiasts. This month we are exploring the huge and strange world of bird behaviors!

Birds have a staggering number of unique behaviors from the simple head-bob all the way to complex anti-predator defense. Not to mention all of the different calls they make. Even though calls and behaviors can be tricky to figure out, they are often key to identifying birds. Join us at Ijams to begin to decode the secret language of birds.

These programs are primarily for beginning birders, and all skill levels are welcome. Before the program there is an optional 30 minute birdwalk held from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. This walk is not tied to the program topic, and is a chance for all birders to practice their identification skills and share their knowledge with eachother. Ijams has binoculars available for those who need them.

LOCATION 

Meets at Ijams Visitor Center for an indoor presentation, with an optional walk starting at 9:00 a.m.
