Life on the Wing in an Era of Human Dominance
Wayne Petersen, Director of the Mass Audubon Important Bird Areas Program
It is easy to take birds for granted. They cheer us with their songs in spring, engage us with the wonders of their flight, and grace our landscapes throughout the year. Yet, these idyllic images belie the serious impact of human activity on many bird populations. Come learn what we must do to help ensure their survival—what might comprise an avian wish list for human behavior. Wayne Petersen is a nationally known ornithologist, a contributor to numerous field guides and publications, and a bird observer extraordinaire. This talk will be the next best thing to birding with him in the field.
