I just wanted to make everyone aware of a film being shown this weekend 
at the Yale Environmental Film Festival in New Haven.  The film is 
called "Field Biologist" and is a documentary about a young 
ornithologist named Tyler Christensen (with cameo by Connecticut's own 
Sean Graesser). Following the film there will be a panel discussion with 
the filmmaker, Tyler, Yale ornithologist Rick Prum, and others.  You can 
see more details about it below.

Good birding!

Welcome to the *Environmental Film Festival at Yale (EFFY)*!  Now in its 
sixth year, EFFY has become the largest student-run environmental film 
festival in the world, and this year we're particularly excited to host 
the World Premier of /Field Biologist. /A budding ornithologist named 
Tyler has enough charisma and bird-loving energy to burst through the 
screen and into your hearts, but is that enough to save endangered 
humming birds in Costa Rica?  Find out at *11am* on *Sunday, April 6th* 
at the *Whitney Humanities Center* in *New Haven, Connecticut!*  Also, 
join us beforehand in East Rock Park for a pre-film nature walk (see

Stay afterwards for a post-film discussion with the award-winning 
filmmaker, Jared Flesher; Sir Peter Crane, Dean of the Yale School of 
Forestry and Environmental Studies; Dr. Richard Prum of the Peabody 
Museum of Natural History; and the film's star himself - Tyler 
Christensen!!!  Admission is */free/* on a first-come, first-served
