Reminder for BCFO members: The next in our very popular series of birding presentations will take place on Wednesday, October 18th. Please join Andrew Iwaniuk for a presentation on Ruffed Grouse.

Andrew is an ornithologist and neurobiologist based at the University of Lethbridge. His research has largely focused on why bird brains vary so much in size and anatomy across species. He has worked extensively with museums in Australia and North America as well as fieldwork in southern Australia, western Canada, and Panama. In addition, he researches the drumming display of Ruffed Grouse in relation to physiology and anatomy. Andrew will provide an overview of what he and his students have learned about Ruffed Grouse, the challenges of working on this species,and how they are currently working with hunters to understand more about Ruffed Grouse populations in western Canada.
