‘Bird love and pair bonding’

Melanie StatenAnderson, Our Town Outdoors

Bird courtship has begun! Either from new partnerships being formed or existing pairs renewing their bonds it is that time of year when birds are looking for a mate. Each species is slightly different with some feeding, some grooming and some snuggling. But can we call it love?

Join us to discuss bird courtship. Michelle Campanis, education coordinator at the University of Tennessee Arboretum, and naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales will discuss aspects of avian pair bonding in a pre-recorded program for February’s First Thursday Nature Supper Club.

This is one of our favorite and most requested programs! Register here to receive the recording for this program which we will send the week of February 2. Closed captions will be available. We plan to be back live on Zoom in March. Please contact Michelle Campanis with registration issues or questions. Register at www.utarboretumsociety.org
