Ordinary Extraordinary Junco: Remarkable Biology From a Backyard Bird

Redfern Arts Center - Putnam Theater

Thursday, November 21, 2013 · 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Ordinary Extraordinary Junco

Readily found in backyards and city parks as well as wilder landscapes, Juncos – little, gray songbirds sometimes known as “Snowbirds” – can be easily overlooked. But for scientists who study animal behavior, ecology, and evolutionary biology, the Junco is a rock star.

This visually-stunning, feature-length documentary film brings to life more than 100 years of groundbreaking research in animal behavior, evolution, and ecology featuring one of North America’s most abundant groups of songbirds.

Ordinary Extraordinary Junco: Remarkable Biology from a Backyard Bird shows just how much wild bird studies can teach us – from how the body works to how new species form – in an exciting illustration of the fact that absolutely nothing in nature is "ordinary."
