Courtship, Mating, & Egg Anatomy
Using footage from the field, this program dives into the often comical arena of avian courtship displays after first covering dimorphic traits between commonly observed male and female bird species. Next, we will dissect an egg to explore anatomy, physiology, and lastly, chick development. Attendees are invited to follow along at home with their own raw chicken egg and dark-colored plate!
Materials to accompany this webinar can be found at the Concord Public Library, the Manchester City Library, and the NH Audubon’s Massabesic Center.
