Exploring Nature Speaker Series: Raising Flamingos and Other Bird Breeding Stories

Caring for birds is a fulfilling and fascinating job. But it’s even more meaningful when it contributes to global conservation efforts!  Kate Lyngle-Cowand will discuss how she and her staff oversee the nutrition, health and even the social life of birds to support not only happy birds – but birds who successfully breed for healthier populations both in captivity and out in the wild. She’ll share behind-the-scene stories of the Flamingo, Sihek (Guam Kingfisher); Hooded Pitta; and Red Siskin.  Guests will also get an exclusive tour of Tracy Aviary’s incubation room as part of the event.

About the Presenter

Kate Lyngle-Cowand is curator of exhibits at Tracy Aviary.  She has worked with birds for more than 20 years (getting her start as an intern at Tracy Aviary) and is grateful to spend her days learning from birds.
