27th Annual Birders Meeting
The Beauty of Birds
at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA
Do you enjoy looking at, listening to, or learning about the aesthetics and behaviors of beautiful birds? Then 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.
