Although it might not feel like it, spring is right around the corner. For us that means bird arrivals from South and Central America and the Gulf states. Bird populations on the Cape increase from about ninety species to over 300. Bird migration is one of those mysteries of the natural world that requires some explaining. Join Philip Kyle for a discussion of bird migration with examples of the avian visitors, resting refuelers and feathered residents of Cape Cod.
Philip Kyle has been a past president of the Cape Cod Bird Club, pens a column on birding for the Cape Cod Times newspaper, taught biology at Barnstable High School, was an Interpretive Park Ranger at the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Head Naturalist at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Education Director for the South Shore Natural Science Center and has actively birded for more than 40 years. Who better to unpack this tricky and interesting topic?
