Learn About Bird Behavior at Audubon’s First Friday

Learn About Bird Behavior at Audubon’s First Friday

Jamestown, NY – At the Audubon Center and Sanctuary’s First Friday Lunch Bunch at 11 a.m. on April 1, Ann Beebe will share interesting facts about bird behavior. 

“Birds Do That? Why?” will be her theme, while she uses photos by Dave Cooney and Norman Karp as a backdrop to her presentation, 

Beebe will explore questions like: 

Why do new-born Horned and Pied-billed Grebes eat hundreds of their parents’ feathers? 

Do Rusty and Red-winged Blackbirds huddle together in roosts just because of warmth? (Maybe not!) 

Why do some Red-winged Blackbird females mate with a male who has other mates? Is it worth the risk that there will not be as much help in feeding the chicks? 

A long-time Audubon member and bird enthusiast, Beebe has served on Audubon’s Operating Committee as chair of Gardens. 

Following the 11 a.m.

White Deer in My Yard

A white deer meandered about in my yard in East Aurora this week. It may have been from the Seneca army depot in Seneca County. We see the white deer a few times a year, especially in the colder months.
