Doris Evans presents a talk about her unique experience observing a roadrunner family. Learn more about this iconic Southwest bird and its daily life.
Presented by: Doris Evans
12 PM & 2 PM
Consider the roadrunner: an icon of the Southwest desert, yet few people have had the opportunity to observe these birds nesting, living, or raising a family.
Doris Evans has been fortunate enough to dedicate a large part of her life to the study of these birds. During her talk, she will share her photography, videos, and insights as she tells the story of the spring that she spent observating a family of roadrunners. Over a two month period, she spent many hours observing and photographing them as they went through the phases of nest building, egg laying, chick feeding, and fledging. Doris brings a unique perspective that combines expert knowledge from her scientific study of these birds with her intimate experience as a witness to undisturbed desert life.
During this heartwarming presentation, you will consider the roadrunner in an entirely different light and gain fresh perspective on life in the desert.
For reservations, please call during business hours, beginning one week prior to the event.
