Gray Jays: Their Reliance on Nature's Refrigerator

Gray Jays are a social, non-migratory, scatter-hoarding resident of boreal and subalpine forests. They rely on cold temperatures or Nature's refrigerator during autumn and winter seasons. Erin Greenlee will discuss how the warming effects of climate change pose a serious threat for their long-term survival in New Mexico. The meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, February 10, at the Christ Lutheran Church located in the triangle between Arroyo Chamiso, St. Michaels Drive, and Old Pecos Trail. Get directions.

This talk is co-sponsored by the Randall Davey Audubon Center.

Test Your Birding Skills

The Catagory Laboratory at Vanderbilt University is looking for birders of all levels of experience to participate in a project examining how perception and memory for birds differs between beginners and experts. These experiments are online on the web. They measure your ability to remember and identify birds and sometimes other animals or objects. Many experiments are fairly short. They can be done on any computer, wherever and whenever you decide to do them. Go online to register and test your birding skills.
