Author Talk: Birding the Hudson Valley, with author Kathryn Schneider

Find us at the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center, 480 Bedford Road, Chappaqua, NY

Jointly sponsored by all five Audubon chapters in Westchester County (Bedford Audubon, Bronx River-Sound Shore Audubon, Central Westchester Audubon, Hudson River Audubon, and Saw Mill River Audubon.)

Author, ecologist and birder, Kathryn Schneider, will discuss her new book Birding the Hudson Valley. Three years in the making, Kathryn wrote her book to help backyard birdwatchers hone their skills, become better birders, connect to the birding community, and to see more birds. It tells birders where and when to bird and leads them to terrific birding destinations from Troy to New York City.

Her talk will examine the methods she used to identify the best birding sites in the Hudson Valley, and end with her thoughts on how birders can use their pastime to protect the beautiful natural areas that make the Hudson Valley a special place for both birds and people.

Book Discussion

When: Wednesday, Sept 12, 6:45pm
Where: Harrison Library

Starting in September CWAS will be leading a regular book discussion. Our selections will be picked specifically to keep us engaged even when not all of us can get out into the field or when the weather feels like it's keeping us a bit grounded. The Harrison Public Library will host us, as well as have the books on reserve for loan.

We'll start our journey with "Living on the Wind; Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds" by Scott Weidensaul. Short listed for a Pulitzer Prize in 2000, this book remains one of the best looks at migration, the impact humans have on this ancient natural rhythm.

Come join us to discuss this interesting view of a spectacular phenomenon.
