Birds of a Feather: Corvidae — Crows, Jays, and Magpies

There are around 10,000 bird species on this planet, and this series will introduce you to some of the families that make up the class of birds known as Aves. We will review each family’s evolutionary history, distribution, natural history, fun facts, and look at conservation concerns for the family as a whole. This series is intended for birders who are looking for a deeper understanding of avian taxonomy and biology. This class is part of a series (more classes soon!). Each class is standalone and must be purchased separately.

Birds of a Feather: Corvidae — Crows, Jays, and Magpies Join us and learn about the fascinating world of the crow family. From their reputation of being highly intelligent creatures to little known facts about magpies, we will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout this educational journey introducing you to this unique family of birds.
