Bird World: Insights for Humans from the World of Birds

High Desert Museum

Just how different are birds from us? Approaching bird behavior from surprising angles, bird expert Noah Stryker will explore the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, self-image in magpies, particle physics of starling flocks and other mysteries. Noah reveals why birds do what they do and how we can relate. The behaviors of birds are often closer than they seem, with distinct personalities, emotions and intelligence. By studying them, we can reflect on our own parallel experiences. Noah will bring together cutting-edge science, personal stories and a dash of philosophy to illuminate the lives of birds.
