Beyond Birding: Understanding Bird Behavior with Nat Wheelwright at Curtis Farm Preserve

Advance registration is requested. Click here to register.

Early spring is when male birds begin to sing in earnest, vocally defending their territories against other males while advertising for mates. With practice, it is easy to learn to recognize different species. If you listen more closely, you can distinguish individuals and get insights into their age, upbringing, and emotional state. Nat Wheelwright, Bowdoin Biology Professor Emeritus and Harpswell resident, will lead this two-hour field trip to Curtis Farm Preserve. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring binoculars, if you have (or can borrow) them.
