There is a staggering number of bird species on the planet, many living right here in Kansas. From songbirds to predatory birds, there are birds all around. There are many unique and well-executed partnerships with these feathery creatures, for instance, the relationship between hummingbirds and hawks. Hummingbirds often nest or perch under a hawk, the hawk is too slow to catch a hummingbird so the hummingbirds are safe from harm and receive bodyguard-like protection from other predators. Learning about the birds living in Kansas and their habits help birders and scientists identify all different species and their migratory patterns.


Little Explorers Club is designed for children age 3-5.
