Illustrated talk by Killian Mullarney

Illustrated talk by Killian Mullarney
In aid of wild bird conservation and education projects in County Cork
The Art of Bird Identification
A forty-year perspective on birding and field guides 
The West Cork and Cork Branches are delighted to welcome Killian Mullarney to the Cork International Airport Hotel on Friday 1st February 2013 to give a talk.   
Killian is considered one of the foremost bird artists of our time and an authority on the subject of bird identification.  His vast experience in the field throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America has helped him develop an exceptional understanding of the birds covered in Europe’s leading field guide, the Collins Bird Guide, which he co-authored with Lars Svensson, Dan Zetterstrรถm and the late Peter Grant.  In 1995 he was commissioned by An Post to design and illustrate the State’s first definitive issue of postage stamps to be printed in full colour, which featured 30 species of Irish birds.  More recently, in addition to completing work on the second edition of the Collins Bird Guide, he co-authored the highly acclaimed Sound Approach guide Petrels Night and Day and contributed illustrations of various wildfowl to the latest revised edition of the National Geographic Guide to Birds of North America.  He is a former long-serving member of the Irish Rare Birds Committee, and continues to act as an identification consultant to Birding World, and an editorial advisor to Dutch Birding
 Killian is very generously waiving his fee and all funds raised from ticket and raffle sales will be for wild bird education and conservation projects in County Cork.  An original sketch by Killian will be a raffle prize. 
Killian is going to talk about the advancements in bird identification over the last forty years with particular reference to the work that went into the Collins Bird Guide.  He will be looking at current trends and considering the advantages of illustration over photographs (and vice versa!). 
There will be a BirdWatch Ireland stall with Killian’s books available for purchase along with information about BirdWatch Ireland.  A number of Killian’s original plates and sketches will also be on display.
