Monthly Meeting – November 14 – Ordinary Extraordinary Junco: Remarkable biology from a backyard bird!

Documentary by the Junco Project (juncoproject.org)

The Ordinary Extraordinary Junco is a documentary film project designed to engage, entertain, and inspire audiences of all backgrounds. Chapters highlight past and present biological research on one of the most common and abundant–yet amazing and diverse–groups of songbirds in North America, the juncos. Each chapter explores key themes in behavior, ecology, or evolution. This video will be screened at the Little Rock Audubon Center, 4500 Springer Blvd.

Why the Junco? So often nature and science films focus on exotic organisms in far-off places. People should realize that exciting biology is happening every day in their own backyards. Despite the fact that they are abundant and common across much of North America, birds of the genus Junco also exhibit stunning diversity in feather color, body shape and size, and behaviors among the various species, subspecies, and races across their range. Juncos are truly ordinary yet extraordinary birds!

Meeting will be at the Audubon Center at 7 PM.
