Junior Scientist Workshop: Do Birds Say Brrrrr?

Saturday, December 11, 2021

10:00 AM-12:00 PM

The days are getting colder and winter is upon us, so why are there still birds flying (and swimming!) outside? How can birds handle the cold weather, the icy water and the changing landscapes?

Discover how avian adaptations allow our fine feathered friends to survive in the harshest environments. Examine specimens from our world-class Ornithology Collection. Try out a few hands-on adaptation activities to see how you would measure up if you were a bird.

Please bring a small snack and a filled reusable water bottle. Feel free to bring some shells or other natural history specimens from your own collection to show off, and we will provide everything else. At this time, masks are required in the museum for staff and guests. Please contact Mary Bailey, youth and family programs developer, at

$35 child/$25 member child per workshop; additional children per family can be registered for $10 each

$5 off with Early-bird Discount (Valid Through November 26)
