Why Birds Flock

You may have heard the old saying that birds of a feather flock together. But have you ever stopped to wonder why?

Join Jessica Griffiths for a fascinating look at bird flocks and flocking behavior.

  • Why do some species of birds form flocks, while others do not?
  • Can different kinds of birds join together in a flock?
  • Why do geese and ducks fly in a “V” formation?

Learn the answers to these questions and more in this presentation, which touches on bird biology and behavior, and highlights some remarkable scientific discoveries.

The Speaker:
Jessica Griffiths has been working as a wildlife biologist for nearly 20 years. She currently works as a biologist for Althouse and Meade, Inc. in Paso Robles, California. Prior to moving to San Luis Obispo ten years ago, Jessica worked in Big Sur for the Ventana Wildlife Society, overseeing all of their songbird research projects and running the Big Sur Ornithology Lab for several years. She is actively involved with the Morro Coast Audubon Society and leads year-round bird walks around San Luis Obispo County for birders of all ages.
