Historic Bird Names

Presented by Ken Burton

Birders routinely use honorific bird names without thinking or even knowing anything about the people behind them. Who were Anna, Forster, Lincoln, Vaux, and Wilson?

Ken Burton will present brief biographies of these and others after whom some of our local birds were named. Since all honorific bird names are slated to be changed soon, this presentation will serve as a sort of farewell to these people of our ornithological past. Ken will also discuss how organisms get named and talk about the current renaming debate.

Watch the recording of the program on Zoom here.
