ONLINE Course: Audubon at Home: Nesting Bird Behaviors

July 7, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, July 6th, and space is limited. Visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-07-07/ for more information and to register.

Are songbirds monogamous? Are male mockingbirds with bigger song repertoires more successful at finding mates? Do male barn swallows with long, more symmetrical forked tails make better fathers?

Join Anne Miller on a journey that will open your eyes to little-known aspects of how birds choose their mates, build their nests, and raise their young. Web cams, DNA analysis, and other new technologies are revealing fascinating details about the daily lives and relationships of our native birds. This course will be illustrated with a PowerPoint presentation depicting the intimate details of courtship and nesting that will add to your appreciation of birds and birding in Alabama.

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on two consecutive Wednesdays (7/7, 7/14), from 5:30–6:30 p.m. CDT. It will be a one-hour online class with some time at the end for questions.

Cost: Your one-time registration fee of $20 covers the two meetings.* (While you are not required to attend each class, do note that we cannot refund individuals for partial attendance.) We will be recording the webinar and making it available to participants for a week after the class. *We understand there are economic barriers that many are facing during this time. If you need financial assistance, please email us.*

Registration: To register, visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-07-07/.

About the instructor: Beginning in 1977, Anne Miller founded Alabama’s first wildlife rehabilitation program, which eventually became the Alabama Wildlife Center at Oak Mountain State Park, caring for more than 2,500 animals of over 100 species annually. Since her retirement in 2008, she has continued to train wildlife rehabilitators across the US to return healthy young wild animals to their own parents. For her leadership in this area, in 2017 Anne received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Wildlife Rehabilitator’s Association. An enthusiastic birder, Anne recently completed a two-year term as President of the Alabama Ornithological Society and remains an active member of the AOS board of directors. For several years, Anne also led the Alabama Audubon partnership with the Alabama Tourism Department to create the Alabama Birding Trails.  For this and other contributions, Anne was awarded the prestigious Yellowhammer Award of Alabama Audubon in 2020.  Anne currently serves on the field trips committee and the programs committee of Alabama Audubon.
