The Secret Love Life of Birds

Saturday, February 24, 2024 4:00 pm

Location:  Wild Birds Unlimited, 19093 West Road, Woodhaven, MI 48183

Phil and Therese, owners of Wild Birds Unlimited, will present an educational talk about the "Secret Love Life of Birds."  When it comes to rivalry, competition, deception, fidelity, and cheating, birds can make the “Housewives of New Jersey” look tame by comparison!  Birds have almost as many strategies as people do for getting together.  In this event, we will take a closer look at the love lives of birds.
