May 2018 Meeting and Banquet
Tue, May 1, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Blue Spruce County Park Lodge
Speaker: Wayne Laubscher
Wayne Laubscher will present "Frosty Forests and Frozen Fields: Winter Birrrding in Ontario." Going north in the winter for birdwatching? Yes! It's quality more so than quantity as this program highlights the various far northern specialty bird species that appear in Ontario and even the northeastern U.S. during certain winters. Irruptive species of raptors and finches, wintering northern species of waterfowl and gulls, and the occasional western vagrants will be covered. Where and when to find them and reasons why they show up so far south of their normal range will also be discussed. The emphasis of the program will be on the areas of southern and eastern Ontario and also a few nearby areas in Quebec.
Wayne is the Clinton County compiler for the PA Birds publication and a member of the Lycoming Audubon Society board as well as the Northcentral PA Conservancy Technical Committee. He also coordinates the Audubon Christmas Bird Count centered in the Lock Haven area. He is a native of the Lock Haven area in Clinton County, residing in Swissdale. Some of Wayne's recent work was as a bio aide for the PA Game Commission. He currently is employed as a QA technician for First Quality/Nutek in McElhatten and bands owls and hummingbirds in his spare time.
This is our annual banquet meeting which begins at 6:00 p.m. Please bring a dish to share and your own place settings.
