Lunchbox/Soapbox: Janine Burke on Artful Nesting

Lunchbox/Soapbox: Janine Burke on Artful Nesting

In our ecologically-threatened world, birds have a vitally important place in the human psyche. At a more intimate level their wondrous nests – exquisite, painstakingly-constructed creations that are decorated, or woven through with feathers, or embellished with objects of a particular colour or sheen – are natural art forms in themselves.

Are humans the only animals who can be artists? Join amateur naturalist, nature lover, art historian and author Janine Burke as she speaks passionately about the art and mystery found in nature.
