Townsend Dickinson will take us on a visual odyssey, venturing to productive birding areas in the Americas, to experience birds on migration. He will share intimate photos of life forms whose world-view can be hemispheric. The focus will be mostly warblers and other songbirds, but there is a smattering of other species too. His photographs depict real birds; the intent is to capture a feel for a bird of passage, in it’s element, coping with the daily challenges in the life of a migrant. Townsend has been chasing bird migrants with a camera for over forty years. He says, “It has been a driven, long-term quest, that has taken vast amounts of time and energy. Those efforts however have been rewarded with those occasional seconds of blessed opportunity, here and there, where all the elements come together and I am able to capture a compelling image to add to my body of work.”
