Forest ecologist Dave Govatski examines the 24 bird species that rely on seeds from cones, fruit, or rodents, and why they move into our area in the winter. Certain bird species (such as crossbills, pine grossbeaks, red polls, waxwings, purple finches, hawks and owls) have behavior of irrupting or invading an area one year and not the next. Dave will look at bird behavior, offer identification tips and call recognition.
