We are pleased to welcome David Allen Sibley back to the (virtual) Readings Gallery. He will do a presentation on his latest book and will also focus on nature illustrations, in concert with the themes of Washington Black by Esi Edugyan, this year’s Whatcom READS selection.

On What It’s Like to Be a Bird: This is the bird book for birders and nonbirders alike that will excite and inspire by providing a new and deeper understanding of what common, mostly backyard, birds are doing–and why.
“Can birds smell?” “Is this the same cardinal that was at my feeder last year?” “Do robins ‘hear’ worms?” In What It’s Like to Be a Bird, David Sibley answers the most frequently asked questions about the birds we see most often.
DAVID ALLEN SIBLEY is the author and illustrator of the series of successful guides to nature that bear his name, including The Sibley Guide to Birds. He has contributed to Smithsonian, Science, The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, Birding, BirdWatching, and North American Birds, and to The New York Times.
