Workshop: Bird Migration in the Klamath Basin

$12 Adult; $5 Youth

Saturday, Jan 26, 2019 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Workshop is at Chico Masonic Family Center (Map)


Bird migration is a fascinating and complex subject. Based on three months spent in the Klamath Basin, professional wildlife and nature photographer Kirby Flanagan will discuss the current state of knowledge of migration in the Klamath Basin. This visually illustrated talk will discuss current tracking technology and what it has revealed, the effects of recurrent drought years, and how climate change has affected migration patterns for different species. Survival of the fittest and adaptability have never been more important to the survival of a species. Please join Kirby for a ninety-minute discussion of the ever changing migration patterns in the Klamath Basin.
