Phantasms & Fallacies: The Pitfalls in Bird Identification
Speaker: Julian Hough
How do some people find an inordinate amount of rarities? Why do large groups of people misidentify some individual birds? This entertaining talk answers these questions ‑ and more ‑ by looking at the connection between our brain and the process of bird identification, and how we all are susceptible to making mistakes. Julian Hough is an internationally recognized expert birder, writer and photographer, and his talk should be of interest to all.
