Birder-ING: a look at Humans who watch Birds

Elizabeth Haidle

This comic series explores the history of Ornithology (scientific study of birds), illuminating the long-entwined paths of Bird & Human-kind.  From pre-history petroglyphs and ancient bird-themed Mythologies,  this universal fascination eventually organized itself into formal egg-collecting & bird-identifying societies -- with varied motivations, involving protection of the species, loitering in nature with a sense of purpose, and making obsessive lists of birds witnessed in the wild.
