You can enjoy an audio tour of bird song that is sure to get you outside experiencing the native birds around us.
The topic for Audubon Community Nature Center’s First Friday Lunch Bunch, 11 a.m.on April 6, 2018, is “Interpreting the Songs, Calls and Vocalizations of the Wild Birds of Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania.”
The vocalizations are presented by the recordist Jim Berry, who has been honing his birding skills in the fields and forests of the region for the past 20 years.
The program will be of interest to those who have a curiosity about how birds communicate, to those who are beginning to learn natural sounds, and to those who are already on “speaking” terms with our native birds.
Jim Berry is an interpretive naturalist and retired president of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History. He is also a partner in Chautauqua Backroad Adventures, LLC, an ecotourism company, and a board member of the Black Swamp Bird Observatory in Oak Harbor, Ohio.
A BYO brown bag lunch and conversation follow the program, with coffee and tea provided.
The fee for attending is $8 or $6 for Nature Center Members. Registrations are accepted online on the Programs page at auduboncnc.org through Thursday, April 5. Walk-ins are welcome.
