Sounds of the Birds is a unique multi-sensory experience. Spellbinding animations from Sheffield-based design team Human are combined with Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux - an ambitious suite of music that reproduces the songs of different birds. From the brightly insistent call of the skylark to the menacing tones of the tawny owl, Olivier Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux reproduces the songs of different birds, vividly capturing their interactions with a series of stunning French landscapes. Our adventure through science, music, nature and imagination is led by Tim Birkhead (ornithologist and Professor of Behavioural Ecology at the University of Sheffield).
Because of a large variety of habitats, Grannis Island has a diverse population of birds. Dr. Celia Lewis will be our guide as we quietly make our way out to the island. She will explain how birds play and important role in the health of the Grannis Island ecosystem. Lucian Bouffard will tell us how some species of birds were introduced. The Quinnipiac Medicine Man, Fox Running, will talk about the birds that once lived on the island.

So, whether you're an experienced birder, or you're new to birding, listen in, and be part of the show by calling in with a question, sharing some information or observations, or trying for one of our prizes.
