Happy New Year, Folks.
Here is the New Haven Bird Club’s schedule of activities during January:
January 9, 7:00 pm. Deborah Allen, “Birding Central Park”. Whitney
Center Cultural Arts Center, 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden. Free and
open to the public. Explore the birds of Central Park with wildlife
photographer and researcher Deborah Allen. New York City's Central
Park is internationally recognized as one of the best places to
observe migratory birds in spring and fall. More than 280 species of
birds have been recorded for Central Park, with more than 200
expected annually. We’ll take a look at some of the park's avian
visitors, everything from warblers and tanagers to hawks and owls, as
well as some nesting birds, including Red-eyed Vireo, Baltimore
Oriole, Wood Thrush, and American Kestrel. The talk will include tips
on when and where to find birds in Central Park. Deborah, a
photographer who specializes in the birds of New York City, has had
her bird photos published in numerous publications. A bird tour
leader and former president of The Linnaean Society of NY, she is
author of Let's Investigate Puffins, a children's book. She now is
working on a bird guide for Central Park. Social half-hour at 7:00,
program begins at 7:30. For more information:
