Program: “What Is That Bird Doing?: Feeding Behavior”

Description: Birds have behaviors that humans may not quite comprehend. WCAS gets questions, such as “Why is this bird doing that?” or “I saw a bird doing X, is it okay?” Through the wonderful videos taken by Bill Deininger, we view many species of birds while feeding, discuss what they are feeding upon, adaptations for feeding, and how using these behaviors can help with bird identification. Viewer participation and questions.
