Find out what makes Kentucky such a great place for more than 360 species of birds. Learn about some of our common and uncommon residents as well as the life and times of artist/ornithologist John James Audubon.
Dr. Stephanie Fabritius, Professor of Biology at Centre College in Danville, will be discussing the breeding biology of birds and what we might expect as we roll into spring. As a biologist, Stephanie has studied the behavioral ecology of a number of ground nesting bird species. Stephanie originally found her passion for studying avian reproductive behavior in the salt marshes of southern California, while engaged in a faculty-student field research project on the territorial and nesting behavior of an endangered subspecies of Savannah Sparrow. Later, she became fascinated with such topics as mate choice and parental care patterns in Eastern Meadowlarks and the costs and benefits of brood parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbirds.
If you have ever dreamed of going to Costa Rica come share the experience with a group from Lexington who attended a trip we sponsored in February.

Details and how to sign up will be discussed.
We are looking forward to a fun-filled weekend of all things bird. Central Kentucky has great opportunities for birding with over 350 documented species.

Explore the world of these fascinating birds with "Wild Bill" Gordon. Using a "nature detective" approach we will examine the characteristics, cool traits, and little-known habits of this incredible bird. The more you learn about them the more you'll love them. We will discuss how to attract them to your yard, and how to improve their habitat requirements.
Mary Sheldon a Graduate student at EKU working part-time for Coal Country Beeworks and Green Forests Work will show how to identify native bees along with information concerning life cycles, conservation and enhancing pollinator habitat. She will also discuss the importance of honey bees, beekeeping, and how to use bee products as a key to a healthier lifestyle.
