Description

Birding with the Master Session 2

January 26, 2019- 8am (registration is required)

Ovenbird by Bernie Master

Come take a stroll to learn about birds at Bird Rookery Swamp with the master - Dr. Bernie Master.

During this hike, you will learn the common birds - winter residents and CREW nesters as well as what birds are using this valuable habitat and why. We have a great chance to see early songbird migrants as they pass through on their way north to their breeding grounds. Many will be singing and we will learn their songs and how songs are used in population counts.

An internationally recognized conservationist, Dr. Bernie Master has a Birding Life List that includes over three-quarters of the world’s bird species, in excess of 7,700 birds. He is the first American to see a representative of every bird family in the world. He was honored by HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands for his contribution to conservation. A previously unrecorded songbird in Colombia, Vireo masteri, the Choco Vireo, is named for his family and the discovery published in IBIS, October 1996.
