Kittitas Audubon Society Program: ‘Bird Evolution’
September 21, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Free
Join Kittitas Audubon Society for a presentation by Connie Sidles ‘Bird Evolution’. Connie has a degree in Egyptology from the University of Chicago and a long time member of Seattle Audubon. Over the years, Washington State has hosted 515 species of birds. Where did this spectacular diversity come from? The short answer is: from dinosaurs. The long answer is: 150 million years of evolution. Join Kittitas Audubon and Connie for a discussion about the latest theories about how birds evolved including one of the most exciting recent finds: an ancient baby bird caught in amber.
