On the afternoon of October 9 (Wed.), we held a wild bird mini-lecture in the 8-tatami mat space of the main house on the Himalayan cuckoo. We had participants visiting from far away who were very interested in this bird’s ecology and thirty minutes passed by before we knew it.
The members of the cuckoo family each have different characteristics, but no matter how many times we lecture about one of them, people are always surprised to hear about their practice of leaving their eggs in other birds’ nests.
Murin-an’s weekly Wednesday “Wild Bird Mini-lecture” is held from 2:00-2:30 PM in the 8-tatami mat space in the main house of the first floor. We choose a wild bird species and discuss interesting characteristics about it and its ecology while also looking out at the garden and explaining any wild birds that happen to fly by. Our first twenty participants get an original postcard featuring the Murin-an wild bird discussed that week! Feel free to drop in.
