Most people don’t give city pigeons a second look—and that’s a shame, at least according to Rosemary Mosco, author of A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching: Getting to Know the World’s Most Misunderstood Bird. Not only are pigeons worth watching, but their millenia-long history of domestication makes them endlessly fascinating from a historical perspective. Using humor and cutting edge science, Rosemary will show you why pigeons deserve a second look.

If you are a member of Alabama Audubon, please plan to stay on after the talk for our Annual Membership Meeting. The meeting will conclude by 8 p.m. CDT.

Registration: To register, visit alaudubon.org/event/2022-04-21.
