Greetings Birders,
I will be giving a talk on FIELDCRAFT FOR BIRDERS at the Naugatuck 
Valley Audubon Society meeting on Tuesday (tomorrow) night at 7:30 PM.
They meet at the Kellogg Environmental Center, 500 Hawthorne Avenue, 
Derby, CT  06418

Details are at this link -- 

Here is a description of the talk:

One of the most satisfying aspects of bird watching is getting a good 
close view of a wild bird, one that allows you to study plumage 
features, observe behavior or simply enjoy the aesthetic experience.  
Try as we may, getting close to birds is not so easy.  Binoculars and 
spotting scopes help and most birders know not to wear white in the 
field but what are some other ways to improve your chances of getting a 
prolonged, satisfying view of a bird?   This program will focus on 
"Fieldcraft", the field practices and specialist skills for observing 
birds at close range.  Techniques intended to advance birding 
proficiency and get those killer views will be revealed with the goal 
of raising gratification and lowering frustration that can accompany 
our favorite pursuit.
