The Lincoln Parish Library will host “Freedom of Flight: Bird Migration and Navigation” presented by Timothy Keyes at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Library Events Center.
Birds have a remarkable homing instinct, allowing them to return to the same area year after year, even when their migration takes them halfway around the world. In North America, most bird species migrate to some extent, with more than 350 species traveling to the tropics each fall.
