Bird Shift: The Anthropogenic Ornithology of North America is an exhibition created by nationally recognized visual artist, educator and ” re-naturalist ” Brian D. Collier in collaboration with Boulder-based scientists, birders, transportation specialists, and others. Bird Shift offers an unconventional approach to exploring how urbanization, human intervention, and climate change are affecting bird activity and habitat. Collier uses science-informed, art-based strategies including photos, objects, videos, and more to inspire public conversation with enticing visual elements, humor, and a sense of wonder. Bird Shift was commissioned by EcoArts Connections (EAC) and is co-presented by EAC and the CU Museum of Natural History. Collaborating organizations include American Birding Association, Boulder County Audubon Society, Boulder County Nature Association, City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks, Environment for the Americas, Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory, UCAR Office of Education & Outreach, and the Wild Bird Center of Boulder; and for the Bus Birding component: Regional Transportation District (RTD), GO Boulder/City of Boulder, and Boulder East Community Transportation Options.

Collier uses science-informed, art-based strategies to motivate broader public conversation and engagement about our mounting environmental crises, using enticing visual elements and a sense of wonder.
