Hi Tweets:

I'm taking Dennis's 2-session class on feeding adaptations. I've had the first session, with the second this week. It is great - very interesting information and also a lot of fun to see species from around the world as well as those found locally.
I highly recommend the breeding behavior class. I hope there will be sufficient sign-up to encourage him to teach other classes in the future.

Hello, tweets.

One of the classes I'm teaching for Seattle Audubon this fall still has plenty of spaces.

You can sign up by calling the Seattle Audubon Nature Shop at 206-523-4483.

Bird Breeding Behavior

Although all of them lay eggs, in every other way birds show great variation in their reproduction, from albatrosses that lay a single egg that takes over two months to hatch to cowbirds that lay 40 eggs in a season in the nests of other birds. Bird eggs vary in shape and size and color and number, their nests are among the most complex examples of animal architecture, and they raise their young in every way you can imagine.

The class consists of two slide-illustrated lectures that will attempt to make order of the array of bird breeding strategies.

Class: Wednesdays, November 3 and 10, 7-9 PM
Location: CUH, Douglas Classroom
Cost: $80 member. $95 non-member.
Limit: 26
