SUNDAY OCTOBER 27TH 2024
DISCOVERING BIRD MIGRATION
As part of its collaboration with the LPO (Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux – League for the Protection of Birds), Marqueyssac will dedicate an entire day to birds.
Every autumn, hundreds of millions of migratory birds leave their breeding grounds and set off on a long flight to their wintering grounds, sometimes thousands of kilometres away. They will make the same journey in the opposite direction in the spring.
Did you know, for example, that some garden birds migrate at night?
Find out more about bird migration and test your knowledge throughout this day of exhibitions, games, conferences and activities.
At 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.: “THE FASCINATING ADVENTURE
OF MIGRATORY BIRDS.”
Reservation required : 05 53 31 36 36
CONSTRUCTION WORKSHOP Using kits; build your own bird house!
Summer is coming to an end! September is the start of
the great migration to the south. It will last
until November, depending on the species.
This presentation by a member of the LPO will provide answers to the following
– Why and how do birds migrate?
– The use of wind, different flight techniques and the mysterious magnetism of the earth;
– The many different migratory strategies;
– Incredible feats of endurance and speed
On their journey birds face many obstacles!
