Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds [video]

May 5, 2015
New self-paced course: Learn How to Identify Bird Songs, Click to Learn More

Author Laura Erickson, and wildlife photographer Marie Read talk about their new book, Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds, that documents every stage in the family lives of birds. Their book offers rare glimpses into birds’ daily lives during the breeding season; from dramatic courtship to nest construction, egg-laying, and first attempts at flight by the young.

The talk took place on May 4, 2015. It was part of the Cornell Lab’s long-running Monday Night Seminar series, a tradition established decades ago by Lab founder Dr. Arthur Allen.

    I recently purchased “Into the Nest” and was trilled when I found this Monday Night Seminar about the book and the authors. Loved this video. Thank you for making this available online. The way I found out about this was from a calendar that Cornell sent me, and I was looking though it and found something else that I want to look up.

    Also, I have been addicted to several of the web cams, i.e. 1st albatross, Red Tail Hawks (the 1st I got interested in) and then the owls in GA, since I live in GA.

    Thanks to all who make this possible.
