Think of this presentation as the her-story of birding and the celebration of noticing female birds. Let’s face it, there’s a bit of bias in the birding world when it comes to females. Bridget Butler, the Bird Diva, breaks down some of the most interesting new scientific studies on female birds and shares with you some of the stories of the Mothers of Ornithology. Learn more here.

The Bird Diva, Bridget Butler, has been a naturalist for more than 20 years, playing matchmaker for the wildscape and the wonderful people who call Vermont their home. Her approach to birding is to tap into each person's innate passion for nature through exploration and deep listening. She strives then to encourage folks to take that passion and turn it into action, paying it forward for the landscape they love and enjoy.
