About Lunch 'n Learn: Fall Migration Magic...Join Cape Cod naturalist, Phil Kyle for his program, Fall Migration Magic. Most of the Cape's birds move southward from July to November where they will find more food and a warmer climate. This program will present what Fall migrants look like, and how Winter migrants appear along with year-rounders. Once breeding season is over, a male’s spectacular display of springtime plumage reverts to their alternate plumage and changes back to the basic look. It is taxing to produce showy feathers, and bright colors attract predators and unwanted rivals. This is why migratory species like Scarlet Tanagers, Indigo Buntings, and some shorebirds and warblers look different when they’re traveling south versus north.
Phil's mission has always been to inform people about the awesome wonder of the natural world. Since he retired in 2012 he has written a column on Birding for the Cape Cod Times Newspaper, presented for Libraries, Garden Clubs and Schools.

He was a Bio Major and graduated from Cornell University.
