Female Birds and the Mothers of Ornithology.
March is Women's History Month, so Southern Adirondack Audubon is bringing you a special presentation focusing on the her-story of birding and the celebration of noticing female birds. Let’s face it, there’s a bit of bias in the birding world when it comes to females. The Bird Diva will break down some of the most interesting new scientific studies on female birds and share with you some of the stories of the Mothers of Ornithology.
Bridget Butler, aka the 'Bird Diva', has worked in conservation and environmental education for more than 20 years throughout New England. Through her business Bird Diva Consulting, she travels across Vermont delivering presentations, leading bird outings, and surveying birds for landowners. Butler has worked for the Audubon Society in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts and helped to create Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Initiative.
Butler’s Slow Birding work has been featured on numerous podcasts including the American Birding Podcast, Ray Brown's Talkin' Birds Podcast, and the South Africa podcast The Birding Life. She lives in St. Albans, Vermont.
