October 18th- Golden Eagles of New York and the Appalachian Eagle Project
Peg DiBenedetto of the Eastern Golden Eagle Project will discuss the eastern population of Golden Eagles and the over- winter ing resident s of New York State. Until recently, very little has been known about their natural history , migratory habits, and local movements . With the use of telemetry, the Appalachian Eagle Project has proven the New York State resident status and has begun to piece together the local flight habits and migratory behavior of these magnificent birds.
November 15. Winter Birding in the Low Country of Georgia and South Carolina
Join snowbirds Merle and Roger Tanis as they explore the barrier island beaches, marshes, rivers, and forests of coastal Georgia and South Carolina with their binocs, scope, and cameras. The “Low Country” is prime territory for naturalists year round, but especially from January through March. There are countless natural areas and refuges full of waterfowl, wading birds, raptors, and passerines that thrive in the mild, spring-like winter. Here the challenges of winter-plumage birding add extra fun to each outing. Like the birds, the intriguing plant life and other organisms in these coastal habitats provide countless opportunities for study and photography.
