Students are flocking to Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City to learn that birds are a lot more than pretty tree ornaments–they’re teachers! Their migration signals the turn of the seasons and links us to faraway lands. Their physical features show us the endless connections between form and function, habits and habitats. Their easily observable activities remind us of the myriad ways that living things act and interact. Because they link us to so much of our shared world, the study of birds opens windows to understanding about entire landscapes and our own roles within them.

Birds are interesting and fun to watch–and fun learning is forever learning!
