How Birds Sense the World

When you watch and listen to birds, have you wondered about what the birds themselves see and hear? Ed Yong, author of An Immense World, will take us on a magical tour through the sensory lives of our feathered friends. We’ll learn about the secrets hidden in their plumage and songs, and the incredible ways in which they see, hear, taste, touch, smell, and more.
