E2853: Ornithology 101 in Sprout Fall 17 (Sep. 30 - Oct. 14, 2017)
Ornithology is the scientific study of birds. This class will be a broad introduction to what's weird, wacky, unique, and awesome about birds. We'll cover evolutionary history (yes, dinosaurs had feathers) and taxonomy, the development and basic physics of flight, and the growth and color of bird feathers. We'll talk about bird behavior: what are the different ways birds find food, find mates, and interact with their habitats? And we'll learn about some amazing birds from around the world that just might be contenders for a "weirdest bird award." Get a taste of Yale's ornithology class in one hour. Bring all the questions you ever wanted to ask about birds!
