Birding in the Ice Age

September 18, 2015

The changing environment of the Late Pleistocene impacted the avian fauna of Pennsylvania when nesting habits and migration patterns were altered by the advance of the Wisconsin glacier. These birds offered the Paleo Indians a potentially valuable food resource.

Thomas Glover will present Birding the Late Pleistocene in Pennsylvania at the Friday, September 18th meeting of the North Fork Chapter 29 of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology. His program will present a glimpse into the habitat and nature of birds and will explore how bird behavior and the dramatically changing environment during that time could have been exploited by the earliest Native Americans.

The program begins at 7:00 pm at the Heritage House located at 4 Sylvania Street in Brookville. It is free and open to the public. For more information contact Ken Burkett at (814) 849-0077 or email [email protected]
