This online program is presented by the Seacoast Chapter of the NH Audubon.

How many times have your eyes turned to the sky to follow an enormous flock of migratory birds? They are fascinating!

Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink.

Based on his book, A World on the Wing, author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes you around the globe on December 8 at 7:30 pm—with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, to the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean where activists and police battle bird poachers-to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world's great bird migrations.
