Monthly Meeting Info:
October 16: Noah Strycker
Bird World: Insights for Humans from the Amazing Lives of Birds
Based upon his recently published book, The Thing with Feathers.
"Birds aren't people, but just how different are they from us?" asks
Noah. They have the same basic requirements we do: food, shelter,
reproduction. And they can do some amazing things!
Approaching bird behavior from new and surprising angles, Noah explores
the incredible navigation of pigeons, the need for speed in
hummingbirds, the smelling power of vultures, particle physics of
starling flocks, and other mysteries-revealing why birds do what they
do, and how we can relate.
Noah Strycker, 28, is Associate Editor of Birding magazine, and is a
well-known writer and "birdman." His photography and articles have
appeared in all major bird magazines as well as in books and other
media; he writes regularly for the American Birding Association blog.
Strycker has studied birds on six continents with field seasons in
Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Australia,
Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, and the Farallon Islands, and his
life list is approaching 2,500 species. He also works as a naturalist
guide on expedition cruises to Antarctica and Norway's Svalbard
archipelago, literally spreading the inspiration of birds from pole to
pole. His plans include a World Big Year in 2015.
