Mozart's Starling Book CoverJoin the Portland Audubon Birding Book Club to discuss Mozart's Starling on January 17 at 7 p.m. in Heron Hall.

In Mozart's Starling, author Linda Lynn Haupt explores the unlikely and remarkable bond between one of history's most cherished composers and one of earth's most common birds. The intertwined stories of Mozart's beloved pet and Haupt's own starling provide an unexpected window into human-animal friendships, music, the secret world of starlings, and the nature of creative inspiration. A blend of natural history, biography, and memoir, Mozart's Starling is a tour de force that awakens a surprising new awareness of our place in the world.

The Portland Audubon Book Club meets every third Wednesday of the month and will provide a relaxed atmosphere to discuss conservation issues, animal science, and bird behavior. Book selections and meeting leadership will rotate based on group interest. Members of Portland Audubon who purchase the book at the Nature Store will receive a 20% discount on the title.
