***THIS PROGRAM IS STILL ON***"Bird Weirdness!" - Cave Creek Regional Park
Cave Creek Regional Park
This program details many unusual facts about some common and uncommon bird species found worldwide. Why did the passenger pigeon become extinct? What is the most numerous bird in the world? What method does the cowbird, who never makes a nest, use to insure the success of its offspring? Why did brown pelicans all but disappear from Louisiana in the middle of the 20th Century? Flamingos, parrots, invasive starlings, storks, screamers are just some of the birds discussed in this program. Biological magnification, sexual dimorphism, ecological connections are all part of this Power Point presentation. ***Special Guest Speaker, Joe Ford. Joe is a native of Missouri.
