Bucks County Birders invite you to join us on September 24 when Dr. Rob Fergus will present "What is it like to be a bird: How birds see the world." We can never know exactly what it is like to be another species, but by paying attention to their perceptual abilities - including vision, hearing, taste and other means of sensation - we can come up with an understanding of how they perceive and interact with their environment. Dr. Fergus will explain how birds see the world: their field of view; color perception; ability to focus; and differentiate moments of time. Come and learn what it's like to be a bird.
Birding Club of Delaware County President Rob Fergus studies human-bird interactions and received his Ph.D. in geography from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Rob is the former executive director of Travis Audubon Society, founder of the Hornsby Bend Bird Observatory in Austin, Texas and National Audubon Senior Scientist for Urban Bird Conservation. He currently teaches geography and environmental studies at Rowan University.
Bucks County Birders meets on Tuesday September 24th at 7:30pm at the Peace Valley Nature Center, 170 N Chapman Rd, Doylestown, PA. Enter through the "deer gate" on the right side of the building. Meetings are free; all welcome.Directions: www.peacevalleynaturecenter.org 40.33067, -75.14968
