Birds of Bastrop County
Meeting: February 21, 2017, at 7:00 p.m., First National Bank Meeting Room, in Bastrop, Hwy. 71 @ Hasler. Doors open at 6:30.
February Program: A Birds' Eye View: How Do Birds See So Well.
How do bird eyes work? Do all bird species see equally well? How does their vision differ from mammal vision?
Board Member Susan Leslie will provide an expert layman's overview of birds' eyes and examples of these eyes at work. If you ever wanted to sneak closer to a bird, this program is for you!
Susan became interested in visual processing while doing research on dyslexia in the 1970s, in Alaska and at UT-Austin. Cross-species and cross-cultural studies in visual perception were in the early stages then, and it was an exciting subject for psychologists.
Susan joined BCAS when it was first organized, and is a 38 year resident of Bastrop County.
