Bird is the Word: A Talk and Performance by Jonathan Meiburg
Saturday, March 26, 3 p.m.

O. Henry Museum: 409 E. 5th St., Austin, TX 78701

Join Jonathan Meiburg, frontman for the rock band Shearwater, at the O. Henry Museum for a talk on how his life as a birder has informed his life as a singer-songwriter. Mr. Meiburg's lyrics on Shearwater's three most recent albums--The Golden Archipelago, Rook, and Palo Santo--are a reflection of the time he spent on birding expeditions to such remote destinations as Tierra del Fuego and the Falkland Islands. His verse traverses land, sea, and air, and tells of vanishing human and animal worlds. Mr. Meiburg will give a brief slide-show presentation and then perform a couple songs. This event will be held in conjunction with Celebrate Urban Birds, hosted by the Austin Nature and Science Center. Attendees are encouraged to participate in three 10-minute bird counts, occurring between 2 and 4 p.m.
