"Sweet as! Sugar-water bird feeding in urban New Zealand"
Backyard bird sugar-water feeding is increasingly popular in urban areas, but has poorly understood effects on native species. PhD Candidate Daria Erastova studies what impact sugar-water feeding has on the behaviour and health of New Zealand nectarivorous birds. Her talk gives suggestions for a better feeding approach and ways to encourage native birds with sugar-water feeding.
Daria will be sharing the results of her research at an evening organized by Predator Free West Lynn.
7 to 8.30 at Gypsy Tea Rooms, Richmond Rd, Wednesday 28 October.
