The Joy of Birds


Course description

In this special Valentine’s Day session, ornithologist James Clowater shares his knowledge and love of birds in two distinct visual presentations.

Love Among the Feathers

The romantic adventures of resident waterbirds are examined in this PowerPoint and video presentation. Birds rely on a beautiful visual language of displays to defeat their rivals and impress their mates. Slow motion video helps to reveal the complex syntax of postures that is the language of love to birds.

The Joy of Bird Song

To listen to a bird’s song is to be truly alive! Celebrate the song of birds in this unique audio-visual presentation. Learn the secrets of why and how birds sing, and how to identify some of our local birds by their song.

Instructor: James Clowater, BSc, MSc, is an ornithologist who specializes in the behavioural ecology of marine birds.
