*IDENTIFYING VERSUS IDENTIFYING WITH: A BRIEF HISTORY OF BIRDWATCHING, BIRD
STUDY, AND BIRDING IN AMERICA*


*By John C. RummThursday, November 8, 7pm*

Do you consider yourself a “birder” or a “birdwatcher?” As used today, the
terms have different connotations. “Birders” are considered hardcore and
dedicated to keeping (and growing) their bird lists. “Birdwatchers,”
meanwhile, are viewed as less driven and serious, and more passive about
seeing birds. In reality, the situation is more complex. Drawn from
extensive research, historian John C. Rumm traces the changing meaning of
the term “birdwatching” and the rise and fall of “bird study” from the late
1800s to the closing decades of the 20th century. View the full 2018 NYC
Audubon lecture schedule here. <http://www.nycaudubon.org/lectures>

*New York City Audubon's lecture series is free and open to the public. It
is held at Reidy Hall at the Unitarian Church of All Souls, Lexington
Avenue between 79th and 80th Streets in Manhattan.*
