March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The program will be a showing of a DVD entitled “Gulf Crossing”.
The documentary by Jackson Childs was created in 2013 and is about spring migration of billions of songbirds migrating from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere of the Americas.
Most of the content deals with trans-gulf migration but much of the discussion is also relevant to circum-gulf migrants.
The narrator discusses several important factors affecting birds’ ability to fly non-stop across the Gulf of Mexico such as timing of migration, bird metabolism, and weather (temperature, wind, fronts, etc.).
There are many photos of beautiful songbirds!
