On Wednesday, October 16, at 7:00 p.m. at the library, join the Chocorua Lake Conservancy and the Cook Memorial Library for “Impacts of Weather and Climate on Fall Bird Migration.” New Hampshire serves as a critical refueling station for birds travelling south in autumn. In this talk we’ll meet some of the state’s most iconic feathered migrants, learn how New England’s weather helps them move south, and how climate change might impact their journey in the years to come.
This program will be followed up with a walk at the Charlotte C. Browne Memorial Woods on Saturday, October 19, at 8AM, with Will Broussard and naturalist Lynne Flaccus to look for late season migrant songbirds such as Palm Warblers and Swamp Sparrows. Meet just before 8AM at the CC Browne Woods on Washington Hill Road with footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather, binoculars if you have them, water and a snack. Questions? Call Lynne at the office, 603-323-6252 or email [email protected].
