Episode 51 – Barstool Chat with Dr. Wenfei Tong, Biologist, Bird Expert, and Artist

Length: 41:40

How does someone who grew up in the urban landscape of Singapore end up leading birding expeditions on horseback in Montana? Biologist and environmental advocate Dr. Wenfei Tong has done that, and MUCH more. Join us for a conversation about her life, work, books, art, and why she thinks of herself as Darwin’s Jackal.

Check out Wenfei’s art and photography and her Big Sky birding safaris.

Join us for Wenfei’s talk at Science on Tap on March 10, 2021 talking about Bird Love: The Family Life of Birds.

Watch a recording of Wenfei’s Science on Tap talk on her book “Understanding Bird Behavior” on September 24, 2020.
