The Devil's Cormorant

Not just birders will want to hear this talk about the natural history of cormorants. Evolution has crafted the only creature on Earth that can migrate the length of a continent, dive and hunt deep underwater, perch comfortably on a branch or a wire, walk on land, climb up cliff-faces, feed on thousands of different species, and live beside both fresh and salt water in a vast global range of temperatures and altitudes, often in close proximity to humans.

Author Richard King (his book The Devil's Cormorant was released in October) will take us on twists and turns through history, natural history, and culture, serving up the unexpected about the world's most misunderstood waterbird.

Admission to the talk is $5 at the door (free for Museum Members).
