June Hunter has been observing and photographing her local crows for fifteen years and, increasingly, thinking about what countless hours of crow watching have brought to her life. Whereas traditional birding often emphasizes the thrill of ticking off species on a list, watching crows is a slower pastime that celebrates waiting and watching from anywhere – even your own doorstep or window. You’ll also often find that crows are watching you right back (sometimes it seems they are even judging you)! Join June for this fun talk about the differences she sees between the commonly held notions of “bird watching” and her own reality of “crow watching”, as well as how you can start crow watching yourself!
