Have you ever wondered what happens to some of our beloved birds during the winter season? Where do they go? Birds migrate to and from places all over the world, in some cases making a several thousand-mile trip to escape the cold. In this virtual program, we will discuss the parts of a bird, how birds migrate, why they migrate, and how they know where they are going. We will also look at migratory maps as we discuss different types of migratory and Missouri resident birds. We will learn about many bird residents such as the cardinal, Canada goose, and dark-eyed junco. We will also talk about birds that are rare sightings in Missouri such as the painted bunting as well as a cool vagrant, the brown booby. You will also learn how you can get involved in birding with organizations such as the Missouri Birding Society, Missouri Young Birders Club, and the Great Missouri Birding Trail. Finally, we will briefly discuss citizen science opportunities like eBird, a free app that can be downloaded on an android or iphone device. If you are interested in birding, eBird will track your observations and catalog population numbers of countless bird species. These are great opportunities for you to learn what you can do to help these amazing animals. This program will be held on Monday, November 23, 2020 from 6-7 p.m. and is designed for all ages. Please register each person attending. This is a free Webex Event, and you will receive the invitation by email from Webex 24 hours before the program.
