Presented by David E. Seibel

Kansas has produced some of the nation's foremost experts on birds, men and women who have devoted their lives to studying and portraying avian life with a passion that few might understand. This talk examines the rich and colorful history of ornithology as a profession in Kansas and the significant contributions of artists, photographers, and cinematographers who focus on birds as their subjects. Is there a particular psyche that drives "bird people," and what is the unique interplay between professional and amateur bird people? Scientists, artists, and hobbyists directly influence the field or ornithology and the greater scientific world at large.
