Description

6pm - Reception and museum exploration
6:30pm - Presentation


Bridget Stutchbury is a professor in the Department of Biology at York University, Toronto. She did her M.Sc. at Queen’s University and her Ph.D. at Yale, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Since the 1980s, she has studied migratory songbirds to understand their behavior, ecology and conservation but has also witnessed first hand the shocking declines of many birds including wood thrushes, barn swallows and bobolinks. She studies the incredible migration journeys of songbirds and the many threats they face along the way. She is the author of "Silence of the Songbirds" (2007) and "The Private Lives of Birds" (2010) and was also featured in the award-winning 2015 documentary "The Messenger." She is hard at work on her fourth book, which addresses the thorny issues of which species we should choose to try to save from extinction. Her program will delve into the difficult, soul-searching questions we must confront in the Anthropocene era about what we can and should do for birds on the brink of extinction.

Admission for this event is free, but registration is required as seating is limited. Registration includes free admission to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and refreshments starting at 6pm, with the evening's presentation beginning at 6:30pm.

The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Chicago Ornithological Society, and the Chicago Audubon Society are proud to present the Compelling Voices in Birding and Conservation series.
