                               Weather: Its Significance to Birds and  Birders
Both birds and birders keep an eye on the weather. The weather has a huge 
      influence on bird movements and migration.  From something as mundane as 
      knowing to keep your feeders full with an impending snow to the nearly 
      infinite possibilities a land-falling tropical storm can bring, weather is 
      something you need to understand to make your birding decisions.   Come 
      learn more about weather and birding from Patrick Comins, Director of Bird 
      Conservation for Audubon Connecticut.

              Here and There (Great Gull Island and South America)
Helen Hayes is the  chairwoman of the Great Gull Island Project for the American Museum of Natural  History. She leads ornithologists and volunteers who have been  improving nesting conditions and monitors the populations of the  Common and Roseate Terns for over 40 years. Largely because of  their efforts, the bird populations, which were in decline, were  revived and today the island is home to the largest nesting colony  of Common and Roseate Terns in the Western Hemisphere.
