Perennial Kitsap Audubon favorite Constance Sidles will treat us once again to her wonderfully engaging observations about birds.

In two more short months, the vast river of birds that stream north every year from Central and South America will begin, first as a trickle, then as a flood - billions of individuals all rushing north to breed. As the days lengthen, birds’ hormones will start to build, and their thoughts will turn to travel: whether to go, where to fly, when, and how. Birds never ask why, but we do! Come hear master birder

Constance Sidles fill you in on the latest information and theories about how and why birds migrate. Constance Sidles is a master birder, a nature author, and a University of Washington ornithology instructor. She currently serves on Seattle Audubon’s Conservation Committee and chairs SAS’s Publications Committee.
