Speaker – Dr. Bridget Stutchbury was born in Montreal and raised in Toronto. She completed her M.Sc. at Queen’s University and her Ph.D. at Yale, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution. She is a professor and Canada Research Chair in Ecology and Conservation Biology at York University, Toronto. Since the 1980s, she has followed songbirds to their wintering grounds in Latin America and back to their breeding grounds in North America to understand their behavior, ecology and conservation, resulting in hundreds of publications in the scientific literature. She has conducted much of her research on her farm near Cambridge Springs, Crawford County, PA. In 2005, Stutchbury was named one of the Toronto Star’s “People to Watch” after her groundbreaking research into the sexual antics of birds made international headlines. Her book The Silence of the Songbirds was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award for Nonfiction. Her other books include The Bird Detective: Investigating the Secret Lives of Birds, The Private Lives of Birds, and Behavioral Ecology of Tropical Birds (coauthored with ornithologist and husband Gene Morton).
