For our May meeting, we will be viewing an important documentary: The Messenger, a haunting tribute to the plight of the songbird. 

Their song and movement patterns have waned over the years, and their peril has detrimental implications for the Earth and humanity. Largely unnoticed, they have helped predict coming storms and the rise of toxins in the food chain. The Messenger takes a visually thrilling journey into the world of the songbird and deciphers their dire message.

Canadian filmmaker Su Rynard says, “Within the story of songbird’s decline is the greater story of our environment’s decline. What if their fate is inextricably linked to our own?”
