The Magic Stump @ Zoom Online

In a typical farm field in central Illinois stands a large tree stump that is unremarkable in and of itself. Over the years, however, this remnant of a bygone era has consistently been host to numerous unusual birds, including Prairie Falcons that rarely appear in the state. No one really knows why. Now a new documentary from the makers of “Monty and Rose” aims to tell the story of the Magic Stump, the birder endeavoring to uncover its secrets, and the plight of raptors that winter in our highly altered agricultural landscape.

Join from the comfort of your home as we view the 20-minute film and have a post-film discussion with the filmmaker Bob Dolgan. Bring your dinner, your drinks and your questions!
