Presentation Title: What Birds Teach Us
Talk Description: Since graduating from college in 2014, Christina has wandered around the country and the world pursuing her dream of finding and painting every bird in the world. Armed with stubbornness, Google Maps, and incredible luck, Christina has defied the trope of “starving artist” and managed to chase down hundreds of birds while living on a shoestring. Join Christina as she recounts such stories as the hilarity of her first foray into bird festivals, the rush of falling in love in a mosquito-laden swamp, and the awe of seeing California Condors along Pacific Highway 1. Her stories will explore the magic that is birding as well as the universal language of birds that connects the birding community and reveals the extraordinary beauty of ordinary things.
