Support the Birders Meeting!
Sunday, March 3, 2019
Since 1992, birders from around New England have come together every March to attend Mass Audubon’s annual Birders Meeting.
With the help of supportive sponsors, we have successfully brought together engaging speakers from around the country, been joined by top-notch vendors, and drawn enthusiastic participants to these full-day events.
27th Annual Birders Meeting
The Beauty of Birds
College of the Holy Cross—Hogan Campus Center (1 College Street, Worcester, MA 01610)
If you enjoy looking at, listening to, or learning about the aesthetics and behaviors of beautiful birds, the 2019 Birders Meeting is not to be missed!
Keynote Dr. Richard Prum, evolutionary biologist and ornithologist will draw from his Pulitzer Prize-nominated book, The Evolution of Beauty: How Darwin's Forgotten Theory of Mate Choice Shapes the Animal World—And Us, as he demonstrates the realities and fallacies of beauty in birds (and people!), and how beauty may not function the way we might suppose. Additional presenters include authorities on feathers, bird song, and avian art.
