      Chemung Valley Audubon Society Meeting and Program: "Treasure Your Backyard Birds" with Bill Bishop

      Treasure Your Backyard Birds
      Chemung Valley Audubon Society member Bill Bishop will show photographs of local birdlife on Thursday, September 19, with his program “Treasure Your Backyard Birds.” The 7:30 p.m. Audubon meeting is in the main dining room at Appleridge, 168 Miller St., Horseheads. A bird identification workshop with Bill Ostrander precedes the program at 7:00 p.m. All are welcome at the free events.
      Bishop has seen exotic birds on several continents, yet he holds a deep appreciation for the diverse birdlife found locally. “Since childhood I have been acutely aware of the multitude of bird species present in my environment,” said Bishop. “Whether fishing, hunting, walking to school, delivering the morning newspapers, playing golf, or just doing yard work, the birds were always there. Perhaps my pictures will help others treasure, as I do, such a remarkable resource and develop a greater awareness and appreciation of what we have right here.” More than 300 bird species have been recorded in Chemung County, according to official records kept by the Chemung Valley Audubon Society. Backyards, woodlots, wetlands, fields, and parks offer habitats that birds need to raise their young, forage for food, and find shelter from the elements.
      Chemung Valley Audubon’s monthly programs and field trips are free and open to all. One of 27 Audubon chapters statewide, its purpose is to encourage the study, enjoyment, and protection of birds and other wildlife, and to promote educational programs, lectures, and field trips.
