The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster announce their monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 12:30pm, which includes a potluck lunch. Following, special guest speaker Gretchen Moran Towers will give a presentation on Watching Bird Behavior at 1:30pm. The public is welcome at all or part of the meeting.

 Watching Bird Behavior

 If you watch birds, chances are you can tell a robin from a goldfinch by size, color, even shape.  But what about birds that look similar, like a robin and a towhee; a goldfinch and a pine warbler; and what about all those migrating sea birds?

Gretchen will discuss how bird behavior provides clues to their identification. Some clues include: where they perch, whether they go down or up a tree, sitting on the tube feeder pulling out seed after seed, or scratch through the leaf litter on the ground. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced birder, learning to watch bird behavior can enhance your skills and enjoyment.

Gretchen Moran Towers is the leader of the popular Tuesday Tweets and Birdwatching for Beginners at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and Education Coordinator at the Green Briar Nature Center.

*Admission is Free/Please note that the Museum exhibits are not open.
