Learn to Decode Bird Sounds with Nathan Pieplow

The museum and the Mississippi Ornithological Society will host a free "Decoding Bird Sounds" discussion featuring bird sound expert Nathan Pieplow on Friday, April 21, 2017 from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the museum's Rotwein Theater!

Pieplow runs the popular bird sound blog,, which is dedicated to recording, identifying, and interpreting bird sounds. He is also the author of the newly released "Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds".

According to the publisher:

• "Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds" is the first comprehensive guide to the sounds of eastern North American birds and features an innovative visual index that allows readers to quickly look up unfamiliar sounds in the field.

• Bird songs and calls are just as important as visual field marks in identifying birds. But until now, the only way to learn them was by memorization. With this groundbreaking book, it's possible to visually distinguish bird sounds and identify birds using a field guide format.

Pieplow lives in Boulder, Colorado, where he teaches writing and rhetoric at the University of Colorado. He is a former editor of the quarterly journal Colorado Birds and one of the developers of the Colorado Birding Trail.

A limited supply of Pieplow's new book will be available for purchase and he will sign books after the event.

The event is free and open to the public. No tickets or advance reservations are required.
