Fort Worth Audubon Society: Bird Food with Wings: The Importance of Moths

December 12, 2019 , 7:30 pm

Free

Insects are a crucial part of the diet of most birds at some time in their lives. In this program, learn about one of the most important groups of insects for birds (hint – moths). Although not quite as famed as their day-flying cousins, moths are tremendously diverse and have some magnificent patterns.

In the DFW area, we have documented over 800 species of moths. Learn ways you can manage your habitat to encourage moth diversity and find out some ways that you can document and identify the various species that you might see.

Speaker: Sam Kieschnick, an urban wildlife biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Sam Kieschnick previously worked as a nature educator with the City of Mansfield at Oliver Nature Park, as a naturalist at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, as a science interpreter with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, as a botanist with BRIT, and as an instructor at Weatherford College. He has a master’s degree from Tarleton State University studying the genetics of pocket gophers. As an urban wildlife biologist, Sam’s focus will be on three A’s: awareness, appreciation and action.

The event will be held at the UNT Health Science Center in the Research and Education Building, Beyer Hall, Rm 100.
