Author Stryker brings “BIRD WORLD” to Newport High School
Approaching bird behavior from new and surprising angles, author Noah
Strycker explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, extraordinary
memories of nutcrackers, self-image in magpies, life-long loves of
albatrosses, particle physics of starling flocks, and other
mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and how we can relate. With
humor and wit, and drawing from cutting-edge science and anecdotes from the
field, Strycker provides insights about our close connections with birds in his latest book, The Thing with Feathers.
Strycker will be speaking at Newport High School, in the Boone Library, on Thursday, May 15th, from 7 to 8:30 pm. Admission is free and the public is invited. Copies of Strycker’s book will be given away as door prizes. The event is sponsored by Lincoln County School District’s SEAL (Students Engaging in Authentic Literacy) grant and student projects will also be on display during the event.
