Let’s face it, there’s a bit of bias in the birding world when it comes to females. Bridget Butler, the Bird Diva, breaks down why by looking at current research on gender and birding, retelling the stories of the Mothers of Ornithology, and making the connection to the current science on female birds.

Bridget Butler, the Bird Diva

Bridget Butler, AKA The Bird Diva, has been working in conservation and environmental education for more than 20 years. She owns her own small business, Bird Diva Consulting, which provides presentations, outings, and online courses for folks interested in exploring their connection with birds. Bridget is a certified Kripalu Mindfulness Outdoor Guide, and has worked for the Audubon Society in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Her Slow Birding work has been featured on numerous podcasts including the American Birding Podcast, Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds Podcast, and the South Africa podcast The Birding Life. As the Bird Diva, she feels that birding is for anyone who enjoys and is curious about birds – if you take delight in noticing birds, you are a birder. Bridget lives in St. Albans, Vermont with her husband and three young children.
