Join us for an in-depth exploration of the ecology and behavior of birds during their most challenging season: winter. Ornithologist and conservationist Roger Pasquier will examine how winter affects birds’ lives all through the year, starting in late summer, and will show how the birds’ resulting behaviors can be visible to any interested observer. He will also delve into the unique conservation challenges posed by winter and how global warming is altering the nature of the season itself. Pasquier is currently an associate in the Department of Ornithology at the American Museum of Natural History. He has worked for the Smithsonian Institution, the World Wildlife Fund, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the National Audubon Society. He has authored several books on birds and art history, which, along with Birds in Winter (Princeton University Press, 2019), will be available for purchase and signing by Pasquier after the lecture.
