“North on the Wing—Travels with the Songbird Migration of Spring”, presented by Dr. Bruce Beehler. In this illustrated lecture, naturalist and ornithologist Bruce Beehler will recount his hundred-day-long 2015 field trip following the spring migration of songbirds from the coast of southeastern Texas up the Mississippi and thence into the boreal forests of northern Ontario— breeding ground of many of the beautiful and vocal North American wood warblers. Along the way, Beehler visited various migratory bird field projects as well as scores of local, state, and national parks and refuges critical for the preservation of the migration phenomenon. Beehler’s informal goal was to spend time with all thirty-seven eastern wood warblers on their prime breeding habitat. Free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 PM for 7:30 PM meeting start time.
