Video explores 'How Birds Eat'

KELSEYVILLE – The Clear Lake State Park Visitor Center is hosting a continuous showing this weekend of How Birds Eat.

The showing will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Visitor Center.

How Birds Eat is a 37-minute video produced by Dr. Ron Goor.

How Birds Eat uses spectacular video and lively, informative narration to explore the many ways birds have adapted to find, catch, and eat food in the unique environments where they live.

You will see birds with bills like chisels to hammer into bark, tongues like straws to suck up nectar, feet with long sharp talons to catch and hold slippery fish, feathers that repel water to keep birds afloat, and granaries to store thousands of acorns for future meals.

How Birds Eat shows you how birds bills, feet, feathers, and behavior have evolved so birds can survive in almost every environment on earth. You are there!

Using mainly North American birds you can find near you, How Birds Eat provides a window into how birds survive, how they play a vital role in the food chain and help ensure the delicate and complex balance of animals and plants.

Goor and wife Nancy have produced numerous books for children on nature subjects. This DVD will delight both children and adults.

Goor visited Clear Lake State Park during the Heron Festival. He photographed birds here and in many areas of California in preparation for his next production that will be on nesting and courting of birds.

Clear Lake State Park is located at 5300 Soda Bay Road, Kelsevyille.
