Time to Fly
- Wednesday, October 27, 2021
- 7:00pm - 8:30pm
- Zoom Web Presentation 1
Fall is a magical time of year, not only because of the shifting dance of color across the landscape but because of the fantastical movement of birds that is happening around us. From the tiniest songbirds to the most powerful raptor, birds are undergoing a phenomenal journey when they embark on their biannual flight to warmer climates. Some of this movement is readily apparent in the cacophony of sounds of migrating geese and the more subtle shift in birdsong in the landscape.
Bird Diva, Bridget Butler, will explore fall migration during this online presentation using snippets of fall sounds as well as photographs from regional photographers. From the challenge of identifying fall warblers to laid-back days watching the aerial acrobatics of migrating raptors, there will be plenty of inspiration to keep even the most ardent birder engaged through the change of seasons.
Co-sponsored with the Southern Adirondack Audubon Society. Please register online.
