AZAD academia has contacted the MUT as it is organising an event on Thursday 27th April at 6pm at AZAD Foundation 224, Republic Street Valletta. The theme is “L-Għasafar u l-Bniedem fil-Gżejjer Maltin” – a presentation regarding the cultural significance of birds to Malta and the Maltese, both past and present. The speaker will be Dr. Natalino Fenech, a keen ornithologist who holds a doctorate in the subject and has also published a number of books on it, such as “A Complete Guide to the Birds of Malta”. Dr. Fenech will view birds from the perspectives of being a food source, their presence in proverbs, folk singing, place names and local art, hunting and numerous others. More information here.
