Can we tell birds of a feather apart? If we can tell differences like male from female or older from younger birds, when we see them interacting we may be able to infer distinctive behavioral characteristics of a species or common behaviors shared across species. We may even see individual “personalities” when we watch our local birds over time. Comparative Ethnology may not be an exact science, but it can be a whole lot of fun—when we get to know the birds. We meet in the visitor’s center parking lot of the Wildlife Refuge, and we have binoculars to loan.
