Migrants, Here and There, Intimate Encounters with Birds of Passage.
Are you ready for spring migration? We hope you are, if not this photo talk will help get the juices flowing. Townsend Dickinson will take us on a visual odyssey, venturing to productive birding areas in the Americas, to experience birds on migration. He will share intimate photos of life forms whose world can be virtually hemispheric. The focus will be mostly warblers and other songbirds, with a smattering of other species. His photographs depict real birds; the intent is to capture a feel for a bird of passage, coping with the daily challenges in the life of a migrant.
Townsend has been chasing bird migrants with a camera for over forty years. It has been a driven, long-term quest, which has yielded occasional seconds of blessed opportunity, here and there, to create these compelling images.
