The Ornithologist Is In: A Primer on Bird Migration

The migration of birds has fascinated human beings going back to the time of Aristotle more than 2,000 years ago.  Our scientific understanding of migration may have changed a lot since that time, but our fascination with this remarkable phenomenon remains the same!

During A Primer on Bird Migration, the National Aviary’s Ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill, will introduce you to the subject of bird migration – including which birds migrate, and why, how, when, and where they migrate. Bob will also talk about recent technological and scientific advances enabling scientists to learn some amazing things about bird migration that only make the phenomenon all the more fascinating!

A Primer on Bird Migration will be held on Saturday, April 9, at 10:30 am at the National Aviary. For more information, visit The Ornithologist Is In event page. Space is limited. Call 412-258-9445 to register.
