Bird Food with Wings - MOTHS!

Insects are a crucial part of the diet of most birds at some time in their lives. Although not quite as famed as their day-flying cousins, moths are tremendously diverse and have some magnificent patterns. In Dallas/Fort Worth, we have documented over 800 species of moths!  Learn ways you can manage your habitat to encourage moth diversity, and find out some ways that you can document and identify the various species that you might see.

Sam is an urban wildlife biologist with TP serving the east side of the DFW metroplex. He previously worked as a nature educator with the City of Mansfield at Oliver Nature Park, as a naturalist at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, as a science interpreter with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, as a botanist with BRIT, and as an instructor at Weatherford College. He has a master’s degree from Tarleton State University studying the genetics of pocket gophers. As an urban wildlife biologist, Sam’s focus will be on three A’s: Awareness, Appreciation, and Action.
