Presentation: Where the Chicks Hang Out
March 19, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 amFree
The Presidio’s contribution to the community-wide Tubac Takes Flight event is a presentation by renowned naturalist and writer Pinau Merlin. There is no more fun and fascinating time to observe birds than when they are raising young. Southern Arizona, one of the birding Meccas of the United States, offers a wonderful diversity of species with a variety of nesting strategies. Join us for an engaging look into the life histories and breeding biology of our feathered neighbors. Discover why quail nest on the ground (or in your flowerpots), what problems pester cavity nesting birds, how roadrunners get their young to leave the nest, and much more! This presentation is FREE, but we’d appreciate a donation if you stay to enjoy our museum, archaeology display or other exhibits.
