What you'll learn in this nature class:

If you'd like to learn more about birds' strategies to reproduce, let master birder Connie Sidles show you the secrets of birds' parenting lives.

Raising the next generation is as problem-filled and fulfilling for birds as it is for people. Some birds go it alone; some use community help; some rely on family members. Sometimes the males help; sometimes the females are single moms. 

Some build their own homes; some borrow from others; some have no fixed abode. Sound familiar? The one thing that birds do not do is: they don't allow the grown-up kids to move into the basement. Birds are quicker to achieve an empty nest than we are. If you'd like to learn more about birds' strategies to reproduce, let master birder Connie Sidles show you the secrets of birds' parenting lives. May is here, and bird courtship and breeding are well under way.

This online class will be delivered using Zoom.
