 Wednesday May 16, 2018     Birding by ear for Beginners.7-9 pm at Nashua Library, Phil Brown, New Hampshire Audubon, Director of Land Management. 

        Join us at our regular meeting for another exciting program focused on New Hampshire wildlife and the environment. Come share your stories. Our speaker is Phil Brown the director of land management for NH Audubon and an expert birder. Phil has a BS from Rutgers and attends Antioch University. The focus of Phil's slide show and talk will be the local New Hampshire birds you are most likely to encounter and some tips on improving or learning what it takes to identify birds by ear. This also would be a great time to learn about NH Audubon's 39 sanctuaries throughout the state and other properties under management totaling 10,000 acres in conservation.            

All are welcome to attend the NH Audubon Nashaway Chapter handicapped accessible free programs at the Nashua library.

Important NH Bird Sighting! This is a photo taken photo by Brain Mattor on a recent trip to Star Island. While easily identified as a Wood Pewee, the bird only answered to the Western Wood Pewee call. This may be the only sighting of the Western species in New England.
