|The Living Bird||
'Tis the Season
Join us for a very special holiday event with renowned Seattle photographer Gerrit Vyn when he gives a slide show and vocal presentation on the gorgeous new book The Living Bird: 100 Years of Listening to Nature. Vyn will be at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3pm on Sunday, Dec. 6.
An intimate yet stunning exploration of North American species, with over 250 photographs, The Living Bird shares our joyful and complex relationship with birds. Through imagery and thoughtful essays, award-winning photographer Vyn, along with leading naturalists and bird enthusiasts, takes readers on a visual and experiential journey, revealing the essence of the century-long work done by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
Author Barbara Kingsolver remembers herself as a reluctant birder until, years later, she exalts in a special birding trip with her father. Scott Weidensaul dives into the secret lives of birds: How do flocks of birds manage to migrate thousands of miles? What determines who mates with whom? And what is the purpose of all those pretty feathers and glorious melodies?
In her essay, Seattle writer Lyanda Lynn Haupt finds inspiration in our everyday birds as they connect us to the natural world. Director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology John W. Fitzpatrick considers the threats birds face today, and some of the failures and successesof the past. Jared Diamond underscores that it is in our hands to preserve the living birds around us.
For 100 years, the Ithaca, NY-based Cornell Lab of Ornithology has researched the lives of birds, educating the public and striving for protection of species and habitat. But the Lab does more than just studyit celebrates birds through song and image, and connects people to birds, opening thousands of eyes to the natural world around us.
