Dick (“Nick”) Nickelsen

*** PROGRAMS ***

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

April 20th, (2016) Program 7:30 PM

"Birds of Trinidad and Tobago"

Presenter: Lauren Shaffer

========================================================================= Stories and photos of the brightly colored birds of Trinidad and Tobago will be presented, including the Trinidad Motmot, the Rufous-sided Jacamar, several Trogons and a Toucan, the Wattled Jacana, Green and Purple Honeycreepers, Golden-headed and White-bearded Manakins, Scarlet Ibis, and the Tufted Coquette. Other strange and not-so-pretty birds include the Oilbirds which live in caves and use echolocation to feed on fruit at night, and the Bearded Bellbird which sounds like someone hitting an anvil! These were all seen from the home base of the famous Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad. A few days were also spent on the island of Tobago where nesting Brown and Red-footed Booby's, Red-billed Arctic Terns, and Audubon's Shearwater were observed. This will be a very interesting and colorful program! =====================================================================

This program is free and open to the public.

All meetings are held at the Kelly Township Supervisors' Bldg,

551 Zeigler Rd, Lewisburg
