Toronto Bird Celebrations presents Flyways, Highways and Byways, with Aaron Tucker, author of Catalogue d’oiseaux.
During a massive spring migration, while most humans are asleep, the airspace above Toronto is abuzz with over 50 million birds – 16 times that of Toronto’s human inhabitants. Home to 3 million people and 180 languages, the City is familiar with a myriad of migration stories. This year’s spring bird migration provides an opportunity to celebrate and reflect upon the many stories of migration in this city, which includes moments of failure, perseverance, self-determination, and success.
Please join the Toronto Bird Celebrations for an event featuring four stories from Justyna Werbel, Aaron Tucker, Flora Terah and Peter Quincey. The stories serve to honor and reflect upon the nature of migration – its histories, opportunities, and compromises – and its role in shaping life for humans and nonhumans alike.
