BREWSTER, MA — The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster presents their popular series Lunch ‘n Learn. On Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 11:30am join Cape Cod naturalist, Phil Kyle for his program Why Birds Sing.
The song of birds can be soothing and inspiring to us humans, but birds sing for more than just the beauty of it. Birds use song, call notes and behavior to communicate with each other. They also use sound and action to scare off predators or warn other birds about danger, to defend territory or to attract a mate during breeding season.
Through lecture, slides and Phil Kyle’s own carvings, the explanation of why birds vocalize is revealed. Science fiction will take on a whole new reality when migration, singing, nest building and territorial defense are discussed. Fasten your seat belts for an in depth but understandable explanation of bird behavior!
Phil Kyle has dedicated his life to the study and public education of the natural world.
After obtaining his B.S. in Biology from Cornell University, he has served in a wide variety of capacities including: presently a Columnist for the Cape Cod Times – Birding ; and formerly Director of Education, South Shore Natural Science Center; President, Cape Cod Bird Club; Head Naturalist, Green Briar Nature Center; Interpretive Park Ranger, Cape Cod National Seashore; Whale Watching Naturalist, Barnstable Whale Watcher; Whale Watching Naturalist, Captain John Boats; High School Teacher Biology & Anatomy and Physiology, Barnstable HS.
