BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum will host an educational lecture on local bird migration by Jackie Canterbury, ornithologist and Bighorn Audubon Society president, on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the third floor Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery.
Canterbury will give a multimedia presentation of her new book “Common Birds of The Brinton Museum and Bighorn Mountains Foothills,” which she co-authored with Dr. Paul A. Johnsgard. It was published by Zea Books, University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
The book is the first photo guide featuring birds of The Brinton area.
This 65-page, highly-detailed book profiles 48 of the most abundant, typical and interesting local birds, and includes species accounts, information on songs and calls and a calendar of seasonal occurrence. Exquisite color photographs for easy bird identifications of common birds found in the region add to the overall beauty of the publication.
“Common Birds of The Brinton Museum and Bighorn Mountains Foothills” is available for purchase in The Brinton Museum Store.
A book signing on Sunday by Canterbury will follow her lecture presentation.
The lecture and book signing are free for members and included in the price of regular admission for non-members.
The Brinton Museum is located at 239 Brinton Road in Big Horn.
