Behaving Birdly ~ A Photographic Study of Birds Acting Like Birds with Michael Audette

Saturday, October 10, 2020

Enjoy looking at birds? Join Flanders Photography Club Chair, Michael Audette, for a photographic study of birds, at times comical and at other times educational. This collection is an attempt to show birds in ways we don’t often see—behaving, or acting like birds. The photos are sometimes funny and sometimes simply depict the bird in a manner in which they demonstrate their most common behavioral trait.2:00 p.m. on ZOOM and Facebook Live! FREE!

The Sound of (Nature’s) Music, with Education Director Carrie Szwed

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The Litchfield Hills are alive with the sound of music…birds singing, toads trilling, coyotes howling! Join Education Director Carrie Szwed for a program about the “music” of animals. Identifying animals by sound is a great way to get to know the creatures that call CT home. Audiences will learn just “who-who-whoooo” is making those common noises we hear in nature. A live barred owl will make an appearance too! 2pm. This free virtual program will be hosted in Zoom and simulcast on Facebook Live.

Nevermore: Remembering the Passenger Pigeon with Gerri Griswold

Saturday, October 17, 2020 (please note, this is a change to the original date of Oct. 24)

2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon. Here at White Memorial, we actually have our own passenger pigeon mount, although it has yet to be put on display. During this memorial program, get the rare chance to see our beautiful specimen up close, as well as hear the story of a bird that once obscured “the light of noon-day” in abundance, but met its demise at the hand of humans in less than a century. 2:00 p.m. on ZOOM and Facebook Live! FREE. Please pre-register:  https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_VfUZR1Z0SgCDxb9lu7Tmbg
