Tuesdays at 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Tuesday September 13th Presentation
September 13th: We have a fun presentation called, “Curious Corvids,” from a wonderful local presenter, Curt Frankenfeld, who will give us a talk about Corvids. Corvids include crows, ravens, rooks, blue jays, magpies, and nutcracker.
"I didn’t appreciate crows until I started reading books about them and found there are biological findings which explain the ability of Corvids to reason, figure out, and have the ability to have emotional attachments to human beings, - good and bad!", said Cindy Card, the Broomfield Bird Club Present. She also said, "According to one book, they warn us not to be mean to crows as they will remember you and pass on ill feelings toward you to their kin for generations! On the other hand, they will bring you gifts for feeding them, as in feathers stuck in the ground where you walk, odd trinkets, and shiny objects they found. I am looking forward to hearing about what Curt Frankenfeld will focus his talk".
Frankenfeld said of his presentation, “The Curious Corvids presentation is a dive into this fascinating world-wide bird family. These smart birds are the subject of legends and myths - from wise ones to tricksters and harbingers of life and death, these birds receive credit for many things in human existence. We’ll take a quick look at the legend and science of some common corvids of Colorado.”
Frankenfeld is currently the President of the Denver Audubon Board; he also teaches Beginning Birding programs for the Denver Audubon Osher Life-long Learning Institute, Douglas Land Conservancy and many other organizations. He is also a Colorado Native Plant Master and leads native plant tours in addition to birding tours and general nature hikes, mostly in Douglas County.
