Location: Zoom Videoconference

Join us for this live webinar on Thursday June 25th at 7:00pm EST

New Canaan Library is pleased to collaborate with the New Canaan Nature Center by hosting a virtual lecture with David Allen Sibley, author and illustrator of the series of successful guides to nature that bear his name, including The Sibley Guide To Birds. He has contributed to Smithsonian, Science, The Wilson Journal Of Ornithology, Birding, Bird Watching, and North American Birds, and The New York Times. He is the recipient of the Roger Tory Peterson Award for Lifetime Achievement from the American Birding Association and the Linnaean Society of New York’s Eisenmann Medal. He will be exclusively discussing his newest book, What It’s Like To Be A Bird.


The Sibley Guide to Birds, published in 2000, was the realization of a lifelong dream for David Allen Sibley, who began painting birds when he was seven years old and has continued painting them for over three decades. The Sibley Guide to Birds contains over 6,600 original illustrations by Sibley, now recognized as America’s leading ornithologist/illustrator. David Allen Sibley is the preeminent brand in American birding, and everywhere he goes, hundreds of fellow birders come out to meet him for his inventive presentations and lectures.
