Flight Paths, and the Wonder of Migration, with Rebecca Heisman

March 16, 2023

We are in a golden age of bird migration science, and birders can only wonder at the ways in which we learn about bird migration in the 21st Century. Rebecca Heisman’s new book, “Flight Paths: How a Passionate and Quirky Group of Pioneering Scientists Solved the Mystery of Bird Migration” tells the story of bird migration research to the present, with all the amazing techniques and entertaining characters involved in figuring so much of it out.

Also, the Kowa Scopers are our champions for Champions of the Flyway.
