For classroom time, we’ll continue examining bird songs and functions of selected calls, looking at both diurnal and nocturnal species. Field trips will be designed to illustrate the classroom themes and reinforce our identification prowess. We will reflect on recent field trip results along with current, local and worldwide significant bird happenings. We will have opportunities for sharing in-field photo results, as well as personal experiences. Destinations and directions will be announced prior to outings.
Birds Of The Bay Area
Fall commemorates the beginning of new life for all those spring and summer fledglings. Many groups are migrating from Northern regions becoming too cold for their survival. We’ll be comparing modes of distribution, especially effects of weather on navigation, and the varied adaptive patterns of avian timing and plumages formed by birds.
