  • DECEMBER – NO PROGRAM (Consider participating in a Christmas Bird Count – See information under “Bird Counts” tab)
  • January 10, 2018 (Wednesday) “Photos from Thirty-three Years of Life in the Back Country”
    PRESENTER: Thom Skelding
    This program is a photo essay featuring Thom’s excellent photographs of the landscapes, animals and birds that he has encountered in the woods near his home during the last 33 years – scenes that may be familiar to many in the audience.
  • February 6, 2018 (TUESDAY) “Winter Adventures in the Southwest”
    PRESENTER: Gary Palmer
    Last winter Gary Palmer joined Skye Haas and Louie Dombroski for a rambling five-week road trip birding their way through California, Arizona, and Texas. Beginning with a stunning drive down the renowned California Highway 1 in search of California Condor, winding through the alien landscape of Joshua Tree National Park on the way to the Elegant Trogons and more of Arizona’s sky islands, wrapping up with Green Jays and a rare Rose-throated Becard in Texas’ lower Rio Grande Valley, this program will recount the incredible birding and breathtaking vistas of their dash through the Southwest.
  • 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.
