Why Fat Birds Are Better At Making Babies
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 -- 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Brighton Town Hall
Bird banders and ornithologist have found that some migratory birds
store more fat than they need to make their spring journey north. The
question is, why do they put on so much fat? A recent study done at Braddock Bay Bird Observatory led by graduate student Jennalee
Holzschuh and Mark Deutschlander, a biologist at Hobart and William Smith
Colleges, seems to have found the answer. This event is hosted by Genesee Land Trust partner, Genesee Valley Audubon Society.
This evening lecture will take place at Brighton Town Hall, 2300 Elmwood Avenue in Brighton, in the downstairs meeting room. Enter the building through the main entrance and take the stairs down to the meeting room.
