Hi there -- my name is Henry Stevens, a young birder at Tufts University and president of the Tufts Ornithological Society. If you could post the following message in the MassBird listserve, that would be most appreciated! --- Birders,
This is an open invitation to attend a talk this Friday (17th) from 4-5 pm at Tufts University (Medford/Somerville campus) on the D'Arcy Thompson project, led by Marie-Claire Beaulieu of the Tufts Classic Department. The project is focused on re-creating and digitizing D'Arcy Thompson's Glossary of Greek Birds from 1895, where Thompson compiles all of the birds featured in classical Greek literature and attempts to identify them and explain their significance. Marie-Claire is particularly interested in hearing opinions from the surrounding Massachusetts birding community about what exactly we hope for from the project, and any suggestions we may have for improving it.
If you are interested in attending, please send me an email at <henrycstevens...> That way I can get an idea on numbers and give specific parking directions.
Henry Stevens, President of the Tufts Ornithological Society
