book cover of scott weidsensaul's book a world on the wingEven 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.

In his New York Times bestselling new book, A World on the Wing, author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes readers around the globe — with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, 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 in a time of planetary change.

Join us as we welcome Scott to Shaver’s Creek to get in the spirit for the 2022 Birding Cup!

We will meet in the Hamer Classroom, adjacent to our main visitor center.
