In part one of a four-part series of talks on bird biology, naturalist David Lukas will introduce us to bird bones and skeletons. We will learn about skulls, beaks, eyes, wings, legs and feet, and the unique features of a bird skeleton, while discussing how each feature helps birds adapt to and move in their environments. This is a fascinating topic because most of these features are hidden under feathers, yet bird bones and skeletons shape every aspect of what we see when we watch birds.

Panelist Bio: David Lukas is an expert naturalist who is well known for his talks, walks, and classes. He is also the author of many books and articles on a wide range of natural history topics, including the books Bay Area Birds and Sierra Nevada Birds. His most recent book, Language Making Nature, is an exploration of tools and ideas for creating new words.
