We are delighted to have Tracy Aviary come and give an informative family program about birds and their adaptations.Whenever we enjoy something about the way a plant or animal looks or acts, we're really experiencing species survival tricks called "adaptations." The Build-A-Bird program introduces audiences to the basics and intricacies that make birds so unique. From their wings and feathers to their bones and gizzard, birds are exquisite flying machines. Participants will recreate these avian adaptations with fun props and then view some of these adaptations up-close with a visit from an Aviary bird. Feb. 4th - 3pm Columbus Library
