 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.
