For the Love of Birds Festival
January 27 - January 29$12
Imagine learning about birds from 12 of the world’s leading artists, survivalists, photographers, scientists, and conservationists, all in one place.
On January 27-29th some of the coolest and most unconventional people in the bird-loving world are coming together to show you just how many ways there are to LOVE BIRDS!
You’ll hear from speakers like:
- Woniya Thibeault, from The History Channel’s ALONE show
- Killiii Yuyan, National Geographic photographer
- Richard Crossley, author of The Crossley ID Guides
- Nathan Pipleow, author of Peterson’s Field Guide to Bird Sounds
- Craig Childs, author of Animal Dialogues & The Secret Knowledge of Water
- Paul Bannick, wildlife photographer and author of The Owl & The Woodpecker
- Dr. Pepper Trail, forensic ornithologist & creator of The Feather Atlas
- Jennie Duberstein, PhD, “conservation matchmaker” at Sonoran Joint Venture
- John Muir Laws, that’s me!
- George Bumann, wicked bird mimic & naturalist from A Yellowstone Life
- Casey McFarland, professional wildlife tracker and author of Peterson Field Guide to Bird Nests PLUS the book, Bird Feathers.
- Kelly Magleby, ancestral Puebloan-style potter.
I’m talking about speakers who are experts in their fields, ready to help you expand what you thought was possible, learn practical skills and fall even more deeply in love with the world of birds. Whether you’ve been birding for 20 years or 20 days, there is something here for you… Because, you don’t have to be good at birding to LOVE BIRDS!
You’ll hear stories like:
- What Ravens Say: And how you can learn to understand them.
- The Gyrfalcon: North America’s largest falcon through the eyes of a National Geographic photographer in the remote Arctic.
- How Birds Helped Woniya Survive 73 Days Alone in Winter: Star of the History Channel’s Alone Show shares her unorthodox approach to surviving in extreme conditions… HINT…It has something to do with birds.
- The Groundbreaking Discovery Nathan Pieplow Made For Birders With Hearing Loss: This is a game changer, if you’re willing to learn a new language.
- Saving the Helmeted Hornbill: Hear how a forensic ornithologist is helping interrupt the trade of “red ivory”, a.k.a. rare hornbill horn.
- AND THAT’S JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG!
What’s unique about this festival is that you aren’t just going to hear from ornithologists and bird nerds (although, they’ll be there too).
You’ll get to learn from masters with diverse backgrounds, innovative perspectives… those who have been willing to MAKE THEMSELVES REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE and endure extreme environments in order to push the limits to experience all life has to offer.
This is an event you’re not going to want to miss!
