South African Hornbills - Thursday, February 4th - 7:15 PM

Hornbills are not only usual-looking birds, they also have one of the more bizarre breeding habits of any bird. Presumably as a strategy to reduce nest predation, female hornbills seal themselves inside their nest cavity by building a plug in the nest entrance. With only a tiny hole through which the male feeds his mate, female hornbills spend several months cramped in a tiny chamber. Meanwhile, the male must provide a constant supply of food for his mate and the offspring she produces inside. Dr. Mark Stanback Professor of Biology, Davidson college will discuss a number of aspects of hornbill breeding biology, including male/female conflict, constraints on egg production, and nest site competition.

Join us Thursday February 4, 7:15 PM at the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) to learn more about another amazing member of the avian species. Refreshments & fellowship begin around 6:45 PM.
