Evening Meeting: Five years as a hot birder: behaviour and physiology of birds in deserts – Speaker Nicholas Pattinson.

Jun 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Meet at 20h00 at the Nassau Centre, Groote Schuur High School, Palmyra Road, Newlands.

Nick did his undergrad in zoology at the University of Pretoria, and was afforded an amazing opportunity to travel to the southern United States to study the behaviour of desert birds as an honours project. Thus began his career with the Hot Birds Group, which has since seen him earn his masters degree at Nelson Mandela University and start his PhD at the FitzPatrick Institute. He specialises in the relationship between birds and their environment in hot, arid places, and what climate change will mean for the future of birds in those environments.

Visitors and non – members, are very welcome, tea and biscuits are served afterwards.
