Say Hello to the Junco!

The Galapagos Finches were crucial to Darwin’s understanding of natural selection and evolution, but did you know that evolutionary scientists have been studying a more common and locally distributed species for over a century? Learn more about the extraordinary importance of this ordinary bird as we screen the film Ordinary Extraordinary Junco.

Produced with support from Indiana University, National Science Foundation and the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior, Ordinary Extraordinary Junco promises to inspire your inner scientist. Popcorn, treats and drinks will be for sale and all proceeds go to the Research & Community Science Program at the Center.

The Junco has remarkable biology for a backyard bird and provides lessons in evolution, ecology, animal behavior, physiology and genetics for us all. Join us as we celebrate John James Audubon’s birthday and say hello to the Junco!
