David Sibley, author of WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A BIRD, in conversation with Charles Hagner - a Schlitz Audubon/Boswell virtual event
Interest in birding has exploded over the last year and leading the charge was David Sibley's WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A BIRD: From Flying to Nesting, Eating to Singing - What Birds Are Doing, and Why.
So it's kind of thrilling that Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and Boswell Book Company are presenting an evening with David Sibley, in conversation with Wisconsin's own Charles Hagner, author of The American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Wisconsin.
What It's Like to Be a Bird is the bird book for birders and nonbirders alike that will excite and inspire by providing a new and deeper understanding of what common, mostly backyard, birds are doing - and why.
Birders and reviewers alike have celebrated this book. Peter Fish in the San Francisco Chronicle wrote: ""Any new Sibley book is an event . . . A sprightly, information-packed encyclopedia of bird behavior. What lifts it into the realm of art is Sibley’s illustrations—330 of them, many life-size. Captured in pencil and gouache, Sibley’s birds are as scientifically accurate as Peterson’s or Audubon’s, but less static, more alive ."
This special event is free. Please consider joining Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, who helps make these events possible. Details at schlitzaudubon.org .
