The Bird Study Group is a northwestern Louisiana organization of birders based in Shreveport.  The Bird Study Group offers field trips, bird discussions, a bird sighting database, and other programs for people with an interest in birds.  Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month except July and August.

The next meeting of the Shreveport Bird Study Group is scheduled for Tuesday, November 9, 2021, @ 6:30 p.m., at the LSUS Museum Annex, located next to the LSUS Museum.  The Annex is accessible from the sidewalk next to the faculty parking lot across from the University Power and Physical Plant.  Signs will be out to direct everyone to the correct location.

Dr. Cran Lucas will present a program on 

 

The Biological Basis of Color in Birds

 

 “Color in birds serves many functions and provides a variety of information about bird behavior, health, and physiology. This program will begin with the basis of color in birds and then talk about how birds perceive color (which is different from humans), and then talk about the various functions of color in birds and what we can learn from them.”

Dr. Lucas is Emeritus Professor of Biological Sciences at LSU Shreveport. His research subjects have varied over the years from cotton to salamanders to birds and more. For over 10 years he collaborated with the late Dr. James Ingold on carotenoid-based colors in birds as well as the source of the bird's carotenoids in their diet.

 

Reminder:  2021 Membership Dues can be paid at the meeting.

Please keep appropriate social distance at the meeting.


The program is free and open to the public. For more information or directions to the Museum Annex, you can call 347-3134 or email: lrraymond@aol.com.  More information and a map the meeting location is available on the website:  http://www.birdstudygroup.org/
