Whistle Down the Bird: Birds of Stamford (CT) and Their Calls - Patrick
Dugan is an exceptional birder, having pursued this passion since
childhood. But he doesn’t have to use high tech smartphone apps to
attract birds. All Dugan has to do is put his lips together and blow.
While working in a quiet basement workroom of the family picture framing
business, he listened to bird tapes to break the monotony. With time and
practice, he honed his whistling and birdsong-mimic skills to an art.
Patrick’s talents were featured on NPR’s Living on Earth program in
February 2010. Patrick has perfect pitch and has used his talent to
identify bird calls when leading trips and when taking on the challenge
of participating in the World Series of Birding in New Jersey.
Single Admission: Adult = $4.00, Student = $2.00
If you have never seen Patrick do any of his bird calls, you must come to this
meeting. And if you have, it is always a treat to have this famous southwestern
Connecticut birder in our area.
