Birds that stay in Parrsboro for the winter have decided that the long flight south is not really worth the trouble.  All you need to stay here are:  good circulation in your feet, a puffy down coat, and good friends you can spend the night with.  It also helps to be a deep sleeper.  And, if you know someone with a bird feeder, you've got it made!

How Do Birds Communicate?  The most obvious form of communication is their voice through songs and a variety of calls.  So we'll look at the role of voice in the bird world, why they sing and the importance of call notes.  But, body language in the form of puffed up or fanned out feathers and specific postures are just as effective in communication.  And, one of the best places to observe birds communicating is at your backyard bird feeder.

Why Crows Have Big Brains.  Family life can be conplicated - all members need to understand exactly what's going on and to work together for the family to function well.  Maybe that's why crows are so smart.  Crows live in extended families composed of juveniles, young from from previous years, and one pair of breeding adults.  Their exceptional memories, problem-solving skills and a repertoire of 20 calls each given for a specific purpose, is likely the result of family life.

Nesting Behaviour.  Some species of birds spend a lot of time to build a good nest, well hidden from predators and sheltered from rain.  Other bird species do not build a nest at all, laying their eggs on a rocky ledge.  Nests can be built in trees, in marshes, on the ground or on cliffs.  They may hold from only a single egg to more than a dozen.  We'll explore how climate, habitat, the size of a species and the threat from predators has created the nesting habits of various bird species.
