Ask an expert: the Australian Museum’s ornithologist picks her Bird of the Year | The Guardian

All Video, News and Current Affairs

In a move sure to ruffle some feathers, the Australian Museum’s top ornithologist shares her top picks for the 2019 Bird of the Year.  Dr Leah Tsang shows off some of the museum’s 90,000 bird specimens and explains why all Australians should care about our diverse bird life. ‘When you think about it, they do the most mundane things in very different ways.’

This video was produced for The Guardian as part of the 2019 Bird of the Year campaign.

Working with the in-house video team, this video was shot by two other staffers before I was given the rushes to script and edit.
