Dr. Rasmussen is an assistant professor of zoology at Michigan State University, an associate editor of The Ibis, the journal of the British Ornithologists’ Union, and is the primary author of Birds of South Asia: the Ripley Guide, (Smithsonian Institution/Lynx Edicions, 2012).

Come at 7:10pm for a chance to talk with fellow birders, and enjoy snacks before the program begins.
