This month’s program on Friday May 17th, “Birds of Ecuador” will be replaced with “Birds of Our Region” Due to an unexpected illness, Rudy Gelis had to cancel his speaking engagements in New York State. We are fortunate to have Larry Federman an experienced birder, presenter and educator from Audubon New York.
“Birds of Our Region”
Watching birds give us lots of pleasure. With a little practice, one can identify all those feathered denizens by sight and sound. Using Larry’s photos, this slide show and talk will introduce you to the common birds that frequent our region through the seasons.
Larry Federman is the Education Coordinator for three upstate New York Audubon sanctuaries. His history with the Audubon family goes back over 20 years when he first got involved in his local chapter. He has served his chapter in numerous capacities and is currently president, newsletter editor, council delegate, and field trip leader. Prior to his employment at Audubon, Larry was a professional musician. His career afforded him the opportunity to travel the US, Europe, and Western Caribbean. While traveling and pursuing his musical endeavors, Larry always made time for birding and experiencing the marvels of nature.
The program will begin at 7:30PM at the Elm Park Methodist Church, 401 Chestnut Street, Oneonta. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Eleanor Moriarty at (607) 435-2054.
