The talk was originally scheduled for March 2020 but was postponed because of the pendemic.

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.
