Event Description

Scott Weidensaul – Living on the Wind:
The Miracle of Bird Migration - with book sale




Forever we have been spellbound by the migration of birds, in which even the smallest species traverses immensities of space the way we cross the street.  New research continually expands our understanding of where birds travel and their migratory feats.  But while the populations of many migratory birds are in decline, we can do many things to save them.  Naturalist and author Scott Weidensaul explores the wonder and mechanics of migration, and the simple, effective ways we can preserve them. 


Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen natural history books, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Living on the Wind, about bird migration, Return to Wild America, and The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America. His newest book, The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean was published in 2015.  Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon and writes for a variety of other publications; he lives in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds.
