Seward Park Audubon Center presents Gerrit Vyn. Gerrit Vyn's remarkable photographs of birds, both familiar and exotic, bring the exhilaration of migratory Whooping Cranes, the fragility of the endangered Spoon-Billed Sandpiper, and the wide-eyed beauty of Great Horned Owls alive on the page. From enjoying Black-capped Chickadees or Yellow Warblers in a backyard birdbath to spotting a Pileated Woodpecker in the woods to admiring the powerful soar of a Gyrfalcon, the appeal of watching and listening to birds leads us into a greater understanding of their environment and of ours. Gerrit will share his amazing images and insights from The Living Bird. His presentation will be followed by a question and answer period. He will also sign books available for purchase at the event.
This is part of Seward Park Audubon Center's Urban Naturalist Series connecting authors, artists and naturalists with the southeast Seattle community.Presented with support from the Mountaineers Foundation.
