The Love Lives of Birds with Laura Erickson


Laura Erickson, producer of “For the Birds,” the longest-running radio program about birds in the United States (since 1986) and author of twelve books about birds, will talk about her new book, “The Love Lives of Birds.” Courtship, mating, and parenting differ dramatically among birds–from the lifelong devotion of American crows to the dalliances of eastern bluebirds, from bald eagles’ focus on home improvements to the female ruby-throated hummingbird’s Rosie the Riveter lifestyle. Why the dramatic differences among species? Laura explains as she takes us along on a romance-fueled romp through the love lives of several Illinois species, exploring the diversity of avian approaches to pairing up. Each species spotlight pairs scientific fact with humorous and insightful parallels between human and bird.

This is a virtual event, zoom information will be sent via email prior to the event.

The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Chicago Ornithological Society, and the Chicago Audubon Society are proud to present the Compelling Voices in Birding and Conservation series.
