Fall 2017

Bird Night

Following a delicious potluck meal, we gathered in C2. There, Steven Sanders gave a Birding Basics presentation focused on how to identify Orders of birds and then how to gather more information, such as field markings, to identify the species. In addition he discussed the ecological importance of birds and how the work of non-profit organizations like Hawk Watch International through banding operations is used to gauge the status of birds and health of the environment. Then we made our way over to the Baer Center where participants made bird houses for Western Bluebirds and Bewick's Wren.
