Birds & Beaks

Thursday, February 16, 7 – 8 :30 PM

Marcy Engleman, Senior Coordinator of Conservation Education, National Audubon Society

Discover a bird’s most special adaptation – their beak! Explore variations in bird beaks and the interrelationships of form and function, and learn how to infer what birds eat based on their beak type. Hear about Darwin’s finches, a group of small birds in the Galápagos that adapted to the different islands and developed a variety of beak shapes.

Perfect timing for the Great Backyard Bird Count taking place Feb 17-20, when the world comes together to watch, count, and celebrate birds.
