First Saturday Walk Cancelled for January

Due to forecasted temperatures cold enough to freeze a birder to the bone, the Saturday walk on January 6 is canceled.

=========================================================================

Presentation by Michael McGuire: Birds of Sweden's Atlantic Coast - Wednesday, January 17 a 7:30 PM

Kelly Township Supervisors' Bldg, 551 Zeigler Rd, Lewisburg, PA

The presentation will focus on the diversity of birds along Sweden's Atlantic and Southern Sweden. There will also be some pictures and discussion of birds from Stockholm and other areas in Sweden. The presentation will cover a wide range of birds from different coastal, river, marsh, and inland habitats; including ducks, geese, swans, sparrows, finches, birds of prey, and more. Pictures were taken in the late winter/early spring in March and later again in Fall 2017. Some of the birds are in their breeding range, others wintering range, and others were just passing through during spring/fall migration. Southern Sweden is interesting from a birding perspective because it has some far northern (polar/sub-polar species) such as eiders but is also warm enough to have some more temperate and continental European species.

Michael is currently working at Bucknell University as a computer programmer for digital humanities and is also finishing a PhD in linguistics at Indiana University. For part of the last year, he was a visiting researcher/computer programmer at the Centre for Digital Humanities at University of Gothenburg and was fortunate to also have the opportunity to do some birding while in Sweden.
