Great Salt Lake Audubon and Great Salt Lake Institute 2020 VIRTUAL Fall Forum | Jennifer Ackerman | The Bird Way

Join the Great Salt Lake Audubon and Great Salt Lake Institute for their 2020 Fall  Forum. This year they welcome NYT bestselling author Jennifer Ackerman who will discuss her book, The Bird Way: A New Look at How Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think.

This virtual event will take place on Zoom. You may register for this event here.

This talk explores a kaleidoscope of fascinating behaviors in the bird world through the lens of five arenas of daily activity—communication, work, play, love, and parenting. It tells stories about some of the extraordinary ways that birds do these things and the secret, sophisticated intelligence underlying their behavior. The talk also explores the new discoveries that are overturning many of our old, conventional ideas about how birds live their lives, describes how science is making some of these astonishing discoveries, and shows the most stunning examples from each section of the book. The talk ranges from the tropical rainforests of eastern Australia and the remote woodlands of northern Japan, to the rolling hills of lower Austria and the.islands of Alaska’s Kachemak Bay, and includes audio, video, and spectacular photos by professional photographers.

Order your copy of The Bird Way from The King's English Bookshop and receive an autographed book plate. *While suppies last.
