"Resident Winter Birds: How they Survive" Lecture - February 17
Those hardy species which tough out the extreme conditions of Winter may be quiet in voice but activity abounds. Learn how physical adaptations, behaviors and relationship changes among our overwintering birds help them make the best of what nature dishes out during the cold months.
"Resident Migratory Birds: What's Up in Their Winter Territories" Lecture - February 24
Many bird species must leave their breeding territories when cold descends on the region. You'll learn what drives these epic trips and be surprised by some of the behaviors displayed only in the wintering grounds of these familiar summer birds.
