2020 VIRTUAL Fall Forum: Thursday October 8, 2020 6:00 - 8:00 pm co-hosted by Great Salt Lake Audubon and Great Salt Lake Institute

 Join us for a multimedia book talk on THE BIRD WAY:  A New Look at How Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think with New York Times-bestselling author Jennifer Ackerman

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.

The King’s English Bookshop will have copies of THE BIRD WAY available for purchase along with signed book plates from the author.
