  • March 13, 2018 (TUESDAY) “Demystifying Sparrow ID”
    PRESENTER: Nate Martineau
    This presentation on sparrow identification is aimed at helping people prepare for the sparrow migration that starts in April. Hopefully it will help people to realize that the challenge of sparrow ID isn’t as daunting or insurmountable as it may seem at first.
  • April 11, 2018 (Wednesday), “The JP Chickadee Project: Big Data from Little Local Birds.”
    PRESENTER: Dr. Alec Lindsay, NMU Biology Department
    Alec and his troupe of undergraduate and graduate students have been working on a new project in the Marquette area. They have been placing color bands on chickadees (and nuthatches), including bands with small RFID chips. In this talk he and some of his students will tell us about what they are finding with their work, what other questions they might try to answer, and how students and the community can get involved.

  • September 12, 2018 (Wednesday) “Investigating the function of warbler flight-calls in the Great Lakes Region.”
    PRESENTER: Zach Gayk
    Zach is a PhD student at the University of Windsor and received the 2017 Laughing Whitefish Audubon Society’s Research Grant to help fund his research. He will share some of his research-findings on warbler flight-calls at this presentation. Much of Zach’s research was done in the Keewenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula.
  • October 10, 2018 (Wednesday) “Travels with Max and Gizmo: In Search of the U.P.”
    PRESENTER: Steve Lindberg
    In a tongue in cheek photo homage to John Steinbeck’s “Travels with Charley in Search of America,” Steve will present photos selected from his “photo-a-day” on Facebook – a sampling of the flora, fauna, landscapes and whimsy found in his backyard.
  •  November 14, 2018 (Wednesday) “Annual Membership Meeting”
    The program will begin with a SHORT business meeting and an opportunity to meet Board members and to ask questions. The remainder of the evening will be a social event with refreshments and a viewing of bird and nature-oriented photographs taken by our members.
