Our next Nature Book Club meeting will be held on Sun. Feb. 27, 2021 2 PM on Zoom.  The book we will be discussing is The Gifts of the Crow: How Perception, Emotion and Thought Allow Smart Birds to Behave Like Humans by John Marzluff and Tony Angell.  
"A great read, this book is a tribute to the little-known and underappreciated minds of the birds of the amazing corvid family. Serious and at times hilarious, it pulled me in with its telling anecdotes and scientific context. Most importantly, it acknowledges and explores the many complex similarities between crows' mental traits and our own."

           – Bernd Heinrich, author of Mind of the Raven

After discussing the Gifts of The Crow we will hold another edition of "MPFN Reads" to select our next book or books.  Book club members are asked to come prepared with a book suggestion and be ready to defend it.  Then by a process of elimination we will come up with the next book on our reading list.  Probably best to have a backup book ready to defend in case someone else comes with your first choice.
