Bird Festival

Welcome to the 2012 San Diego Bird Festival


For 19 years, George and Christy Happ have watched a pair of Sandhill Cranes near their home in Alaska. The birds, dubbed “Millie” and “Roy” by their observers, return in the spring each year, defend a nest territory, and raise their young. The Happs have recorded the birds' daily activities in journals, photos, and videos, documenting the hatchlings as they learn---in a short three months---all the things growing birds must know to survive on their own. Summer school lessons include foraging, dodging danger, communication, flight, and dancing. Devoted parental coaching from Millie and Roy refines the chicks’ innate behavioral talents. Follow these intimate stories in this live presentation.  Sponsored by Princeton Univeristy Press
