The Mojave Desert is one of four distinct deserts in North America. It is also the driest, receiving less precipitation than the Sonoran, Chihuahuan and Great Basin Deserts. Still, well over 300 species of birds spend part of their annual life cycle migrating through, breeding, or overwintering in the Mojave Desert.
Bird diversity changes across the seasons as well as the plant communities, and plant communities are heavily dictated by elevation. In this webinar, we will look at bird diversity and behavior across the seasons and elevations. Along with broad views we will zoom in to highlight examples of adaptations of many of our birds. You will leave the webinar with a better understanding of when and where to look for by examining what influences their behaviors throughout the year.
The presentation will last about an hour and there will be time for questions afterwards.
