Thursday May 2nd @ 7:00 PM ~ Birdwatching in NH with Eric Masterson
Eric Masterson has produced the definitive guide to birding in New Hampshire. Designed to appeal to expert and backyard birdwatchers alike, the comprehensive guide reveals, through maps that outline more than 120 birding sites across the state, where, when, and how to watch and enjoy birds in New Hampshire. It also includes the latest information about the seasonal status and distribution of the more than 300 species seen regularly in New Hampshire and features a thorough introduction to the art and practice of birdwatching, including equipment, ethics, migration, conservation, and most of all, finding that “good bird.” The audiovisual presentation will focus on making sure you dont miss that special moment, be it a flight of hawks in Hancock, a fallout of warblers along the coast, or a collection of storm-grounded waterbirds along the Connecticut River. Eric Masterson has worked for twelve years in the field of environmental conservation, including eight years at New Hampshire Audubon. He currently serves on the New Hampshire Rare Bird Committee and is a seasonal editor for the quarterly journal New Hampshire Bird Records.
