This class combines two very popular programs into one fun weekend learning about birds. Have you ever wondered about the inner workings of birds and how they behave? Our first day focuses on bird structure and function as we examine bones, feathers and anatomy, and talk about muscles, metabolism, and digestion in preparation for a hands-on dissection of a pigeon. On the second day, we build on our exploration of anatomy to learn why birds behave in the ways they do, from the minutia of daily grooming to the global sweep of migration. When not in the classroom, we will venture into the natural laboratory around Limantour Beach to apply our knowledge and enjoy the world of birds in a new light. Accommodations included at the Clem Miller Environmental Education Center.
