Birding Her-story: The Lost Legacy of Women in Ornithology

Live Event
May 3, 2023: 7:00 pm

“Bird Diva” Bridget Butler believes that there’s a bit of bias in the birding world when it comes to females. In this presentation, she examines new scientific studies on female birds, shares stories of the “Mothers of Ornithology,” and reflects on current research about gender and birding.
