How Birds Do It
Ever wonder how birds are equipped to produce those warm, fuzzy chicks in the nest? Not all is as it seems! Join Dr. David M. Bird as he takes you on a humorous “bird’s eye view” of the seemingly indecent world of avian reproduction. It simply puts television soap operas to shame! You may never look at birds the same again.
Dr. Bird recently retired as an Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology and Director of the Avian Science and Conservation Centre of McGill University in Montreal and now lives on Vancouver Island. He has published 200 peer-reviewed papers and supervised 50 graduate students on a wide range of wildlife themes, including endangered species, toxicology, captive propagation of birds of prey, human-wildlife conflicts and communication of science to the public. A new passion of his is the application of drones to wildlife research and conservation. In August 2017 the Society of Canadian Ornithologists honored him with its most prestigious award, The Doris H. Speirs Award for Outstanding Lifetime Contributions to Canadian Ornithology.
