Nature Night: Pigeons – Getting to Know the Most Misunderstood Bird

Until recently, people adored pigeons, and they were a symbol of power and class. How did they fall from grace, and should we give them a second chance? Join author and cartoonist Rosemary Mosco for a presentation based on her book A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching. She’ll explain the latest research on pigeon genetics and behavior, talk about the wild history of pigeons and people, and tell you why you should add pigeon-watching to your nature explorations.

About Rosemary:

Rosemary makes books and cartoons that connect people with the natural world. Her Bird and Moon nature comics won the National Cartoonists Society’s award for Best Online Short Form Comic and were the subject of an award-winning museum exhibit. She makes best-selling science books for kids and adults and gives keynotes at birding festivals. She’s written and drawn for The New York Times, Audubon, PBS kids’ Elinor Wonders Why, Ranger Rick, and more.
