7:30 pm

Fee: 

$5 for Nature Manitoba members, $10 for non-members (students: $3 for members, $5 for non-members).

We will examine Manitoba's regularly occurring Tyrant flycatchers (Family Tyrannidae), plus a vagrant and potential vagrants. This will include an overview of the family, including a little of its evolutionary history; for example, do you know what makes this family unique amongst Manitoba's passerine families? We will discuss each species' distribution and habitat, key behavioural aspects, and, of course, how to identify this tricky bunch by sight and by sound.
