Bird Migration

Winter bird migration will be the topic of the Marine Discovery Center’s February lecture. This year’s 2022 Monthly Lecture Series will be held in a live outdoor setting under MDC’s pavilion.

Guest speaker Joan Tague, an avid birder, nature educator and Halifax River Audubon field trip leader, will present on this timely topic on Thursday, Feb. 17, at 6:30 p.m.

A Pittsburgh native, Tague served as a tour docent for five years at the Pittsburgh (now National) Aviary and, after moving to Florida, has led tours, lectures, classes and programming at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Ormond Beach Environmental Discovery Center and Gamble Rogers State Park.

The event is free to the public, but donations to the Marine Discovery Center are always appreciated.

The presentation will be videotaped and archived later on MDC’s website, allowing those who cannot attend the lecture in person to watch it later from home.

Guests attending the lecture are encouraged to wear masks and to practice social distancing during the event. Some chairs will be available under the pavilion, but guests may also bring their own folding chairs to sit wherever they feel most comfortable. Guests should dress appropriately for the outdoor temperature on the day of the presentation.
