Speaking Program: Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds

Based on Laura and Marie Read’s bestselling book of the same title, Laura talks about the challenges birds of a few representative species face in selecting mates, mating, producing a suitable place to deposit and incubate eggs, and rearing and educating young. She also gives a bit of information about how Marie and the book’s other photographers got some of their amazing shots. Laura originally presented this talk in May 2015 for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s popular Monday Night Seminar series.
