Indoor Program – Mark Seth Lender -Bird Whispering: The True Relationship of Humans and Wildlife

November 13, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

While you are watching birds, the birds are very likely watching you. We often misapprehend our relationship with wildlife, igno- ring warnings, mistaking curiosity for aggression, seeing same- ness when there is difference, difference when confronted with sameness. Above all, we are quick to assume that we are the species in control when the opposite is just as likely to be true. Mark Seth Lender, who has spent decades watching—and being watched by—birds and other wildlife, will share his observations, writing, and photographs of birds and other animals. Mark is a producer, essayist, and photographer for Living on Earth, Public Radio’s program about wildlife and the environment. He presents his own material on air, and has covered stories on animals of all kinds from around the world. A CT resident, he is the author of Salt Marsh Diary, A Year on the Connecticut Shore, and he has a column in Shoreline Times.
