Thursday, February 11, 7 p.m. EST on ZOOM – REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Be my Valentine Bird! Spring will be here soon and our local birds feel it. Courtship season is just beginning.  Male birds are looking for their valentines and each he-bird has to claim territory and attract the attention of a female by their song quality, attentive behavior and bright plumage. Unmated female cardinals look for the brightest red male that’s available. Why? Find out via Zoom in this free program with natural historian Stephen Lyn Bales. This event is sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society and the UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center.
