February 26, 2020 – Author Scott Weidensaul, whose book Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds was nominated for a Pultizer Prize, will be giving a lecture on bird migration and habitats at the Ridgefield Library at 1 p.m. Tuesday March 24.

The talk, part of the annual Conservation Meeting of the Ridgefield Garden Club, is co-sponsored by the Connecticut Audubon Society.

It is free and open to the public but seating is limited.

Weidensaul is a nationally recognized & renowned ornithologist, and author and naturalist. His 2018 Connecticut State of the Birds article, titled “New Technology Shows that Birds Are Closer to Us than We Probably Thought,” discusses the Motus tracking technology that Connecticut Audubon is employing at Deer Pond Farm in Sherman and the Shepaug Dam in Southbury.

He leads a number of ongoing research projects focusing on owls, hummingbirds and passerines (songbirds & perching birds) & lectures widely. Weidensaul combines his rigorous research with his talents as an evocative and engaging writer and speaker to bring to life the journeys of birds in a compelling way.
