Ruffled Feathers Book Club: Living on the Wind

Do you like to read? Do you like birds? Are you a member of Travis Audubon?

Then we have just the thing for you! Travis Audubon has started a new book club with an emphasis on books about birds, birding, nature and conservation. Please come!

Join us on Sunday, September 10th from 2-4 pm for our next meeting.
Be prepared to discuss Scott Weidensaul’s book, Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds. Scott will be our featured speaker for the September Monthly Meeting!

“Bird migration is the world’s only true unifying natural phenomenon, stitching the continents together in a way that even the great weather systems fail to do. Scott Weidensaul follows awesome kettles of hawks over the Mexican coastal plains, Bar-tailed Godwits that hitchhike on gale winds 7,000 miles nonstop across the Pacific from Alaska to New Zealand, and myriad songbirds whose numbers have dwindled so dramatically in recent decades. Migration paths form an elaborate global web that shows serious signs of fraying, and Weidensaul delves into the tragedies of habitat degradation and deforestation with an urgency that brings to life the vast problems these miraculous migrants now face. Living on the Wind is a magisterial work of nature writing.” -Google Books

Ruffled Feathers Book Club will meet in Travis Audubon’s Training Center on the second floor of the AGE building at 3710 Cedar St. in central Austin. You must read the book prior to the meeting. Please RSVP to Jordan Price, Travis Audubon’s Director of Administration & Membership to let us know that you will be attending. His email address is membership@travisaudubon.org.
