Atlanta Bird Fest 2020 Keynote: A World of Wings with Scott Weidensaul
Sunday, April 19
2:00 - 3:00pm

Join us to celebrate the opening of Atlanta Bird Fest 2020! This year, we welcome Scott Weidensaul as our keynote speaker. Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink. Based on his forthcoming book "A World of Wings," author and researcher Scott Weidensaul will take us around the globe—with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean, where activists and police are battling bird poachers—to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world's great bird migrations.

Registration will open to current Atlanta Audubon members on Tuesday, March 3, at 10:00 AM EST. Registration will open to non-members on Monday, March 9.
