This ticket is for online livestream access to David Sibley: The Psychology of Bird Identification. You will be able to access the livestream via the Zoom platform. 

The Sibley Guide to Birds, published in 2000, was the realization of a lifelong dream for David Allen Sibley, who began painting birds when he was seven years old and has continued painting them for over three decades. The Sibley Guide to Birds contains over 6,600 original illustrations by Sibley, now recognized as America’s leading ornithologist/illustrator. David Allen Sibley is the preeminent brand in American birding, and everywhere he goes, hundreds of fellow birders come out to meet him for his inventive presentations and lectures.

In this online presentation, illustrated with photos, drawings, and a few tests, David talks about how we perceive the world around us, and how our brains both help and hinder our efforts at bird identification.

The lecture will be one hour in length, from 2-3 pm, followed by a question-and-answer session lasting approximately 30 minutes. It will be held via the Zoom Webinar platform. Live auto-captioning will be available.
