Amazing Bird Adaptations
Thursday, December 7th
Tyvola Senior Center
Birds are amazing creature, as we all know. They have filled every nook and cranny on this planet. How have they achieved this feat? By adapting to their habitats and taking advantage of their new environments.
Larry Leamy, Professor Emeritus of the Biology Dept. at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, will present a talk entitled “Bird Adaptations” at our December meeting. This will be a light-hearted look at several of the amazing adaptations in birds that allow them to flourish in their native environments. Larry promises some Far Side cartoons in this presentation, so come join the fun.
So, join us for some learnin’ and laughin’ Thursday, December 7th at the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Rd.) Refreshments will begin around 6:45 PM with presentation starting at 7:15 PM.
We will again attempt to Zoom this program, so member will receive the Zoom link Wednesday, December 6th. If you are not a member, but want to join us, contact Judy Walker (email@example.com) for the link.
