Upcoming Programs


The Journey of Birds Across Space and Time

Wednesday, August 19, 2020
7:00pm-9:00pm via Zoom
Dr Morgan Tingley

The Carolina Parakeet, the Heath Hen, the Passenger Pigeon - when we contemplate how our country’s
bird life has changed, we often focus on the handful of species we have lost entirely. But while we have
yet to lose a single bird species to our rapidly changing climate, the birds around us have been adapting
and changing in a multitude of ways. Join Dr. Tingley on a journey across our nation and through the last
century, walking in the footsteps of past zoologists to compare their world to the one we see today, to
learn how climate change has already dramatically changed the lives of birds.

Birding Brazil Virtually

Saturday, July 25th
11:30am

Mentioned by Luke in his Wednesday talk SAVE Brazil and Avistar (The Audubon equivalent there) are running a live Zoom/Youtube feederwatch from feeders across Brazil. It’ll probably be in Brazilian mainly, but they do give many of the bird names in English too and show pictures and range maps of species so you can work out what you are looking at.

As we can't run organized trips at this moment in time, Luke Tiller (our new Field Trip Chair) has written a short article with some suggestions on what to look out for and where to go at this time of year. We hope it might inspire you to some birding adventures.
