Where Do Birds Come From?

Thursday, December 1, 7 - 8:30pm

Union Bay Natural Area (aka Montlake Fill) hosts some 259 different species of birds everything from the largest swans (with wingspans of 7 feet) to the tiniest songbirds (bushtits with a wingspan of 6 inches). Some of our birds are so dull they have almost no color at all though their voices can be very sweet (warbling vireos are a good example). Other birds croak like frogs but glisten like gems (wood ducks). Where did this spectacular diversity come from? The short answer is: from dinosaurs. The long answer is: 150 million years of evolution. Cost: $15
