Pigeon Watching: Getting to Know the World’s Most Misunderstood Bird (Virtual Event)

Rock pigeons are much maligned and overlooked, but they’re secretly fascinating, with a drama-rich 5000+-year-long history of domestication. Join author and cartoonist Rosemary Mosco to learn the secrets of pigeons – from milk, to genetics, to romance. Rosemary makes books and cartoons that connect people with the natural world. Her Bird and Moon nature comics won the National Cartoonists Society’s award for Best Online Short Form Comic, were the subject of an award-winning museum exhibit, and are collected in a book that’s a 2019 ALA Great Graphic Novel for Teens. She makes best-selling science books for kids and adults, gives engaging keynotes at birding festivals, and writes for the PBS kids’ show Elinor Wonders Why.
