> Join HAS member and birding guide/author Sam Fried as he describes a recent visit to our northern neighbor. Traveling 6000 miles by car and boat, we explore the Maritime Provinces of Canada.  Starting from Connecticut, we briefly visit New Brunswick, circumnavigate Cape Breton Island of Nova Scotia and cross the Northumberland Strait to the magnificent and stark scenery of Newfoundland, with its craggy headlands, rocky seacoast and fascinating history.  The native wildlife is key as we journey by ship and shore to discover the birds and mammals of this little known province.  Onward to Labrador, home of a new 700 mile dirt road that circles the province, where we drive through the endless boreal forest in search of wildlife and local cultures.  We complete this epic journey with a visit to Quebec and experience its more civilized delights.

> Townsend Dickinson will take us on a visual odyssey, venturing to productive birding areas in the Americas, to experience birds on migration. He will share intimate photos of life forms whose world can be virtually hemispheric. The focus will be mostly warblers and other        songbirds, with a smattering of other species. His photographs depict real birds; the intent is to capture a feel for a bird of passage, coping with the daily challenges in the life of a migrant.
