Secrets of Wetlands Birds Program
4/23 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Matt Perry will present “Secrets of Wetlands Birds” on Wednes., April 23 at 6:30 pm in the Meeting Room of the Basloe Library, Herkimer, NY. Perry, who is Naturalist and Conservation Director at Spring Farm CARES, is well known for his wonderful wildlife videos.
Perry’s new video and talk focuses on seldom seen species, including the Great Egret, Least Bittern, Marsh Wren and Bald Eagle. Both native wetlands birds and migrants, such as Mute Swans at the Utica Marsh, will be shown. Other footage comes from Verona Beach State Park, Delta Lake, Spring Farm CARES Nature Sanctuary and Wildsprite, an Adirondack foothills refuge. At Wildsprite, he filmed a Great Blue Heron family and both the sight and sounds of a large Heron feeding her young are startling!
Everyone is welcome at this event. Brief elections will be held for Beavers: Wetlands & Wildlife, and refreshments served. Beavers: Wetlands & Wildlife is an educational nonprofit that was formed to carry on the work of Beaver Woman, Dorothy Richards, and has created International Beaver Day.
