Sleeping while flying through the night sky? There are birds that can do that. Fly continuously for weeks without landing? There are birds that can do that. Echolocate through a dark cave just like a bat? Yes, there are birds that can do that too! In this class we will learn the basics of bird life, like nest building, finding mates, acquiring food, but we will also learn extraordinary, little known secrets of bird life. How come an owl egg is round and a cliff-dwelling bird’s egg is pear-shaped? How come birds don’t have teeth? What makes water roll off a duck’s back? All these questions and more will be discussed and answered in this eye-opening and fun class about one of the most successful animal groups on the planet…birds!
