At Indoor Meetings, starting about 7:00 p.m., Lambton Wildlife has inaugurated a social time to give people the chance to visit with friends and to say hello to fellow Lambton Wildlife members.

To make your time even more pleasurable, cookies and juice will also be served for your enjoyment.  This is a great chance to talk with old friends, to make new ones, and to greet new members to the club and make them feel welcome.

Please come out and enjoy the social time and refreshments before Dr. Jenny McCune’s presentation “Rare Woodland Plants of Southern Ontario.”

We look forward to seeing you at social time.

scott-macdougall-shackletonProfessor Scott MacDougall-Shackleton, Director of Advanced Facility for Avian Research at UWO, gave a presentation on birds and how they respond to changes in weather and daylight, and how they cope with the winter.

 

Some bird behavior is guided and influenced by the length of daylight. This is one of the factors that influences migration. Birds migrate based partially on day length. Hours of daylight let them know it is time to start their spring and fall migrations. Even caged birds display migratory restlessness by fluttering their wings and moving back and forth inside their cages during migration time for their species.
