Bird Week 2022 on explore.org has come and gone, but if you missed it I hosted a series of live events to celebrate birds and learn more about their amazing lives.
World Migratory Bird Day Live Chat (May 14)
California Condor Q&A
Bald eagle Q&A
Atlantic Puffin Q&A
I also wrote and narrated a video series highlighting a few superpowers of birds.
Finally, in my most recent blog post on explore.org I examine the phenomenon of siblicide in certain birds. Life in the nest can be harsh, and some birds take their sibling rivalry to the extreme.
I thank the crew at explore.org for helping to produce Bird Week and showcase these wonderful and amazing creatures. I hope you’ve had an opportunity to enjoy some time watching our feathered neighbors. If not, do yourself a favor and make the effort. Even the most common and overlooked birds have incredible stories to tell.
