All About Migration
Mark your calendar for 1:00-3:00 PM on Saturday, March 11th.
When spring is in full swing, birds are on the wing! Every year, millions of birds migrate incredible distances. How and why do they do it? Join Jessica Griffiths for an fascinating look at the phenomenon of bird migration. Learn about the remarkable adaptations birds have for long-distance travel as we answer such questions as: How do birds know where to go? How do their bodies change to prepare for the journey? How many miles per gallon would a migrating warbler get? The presentation will touch on bird physiology and behavior, and will highlight the latest scientific research on migration.
