On Tuesday, October 9th, the Linnaean Society of New York's 2018-2019
Speaker Program will feature two new presentations:


6:00 pm - A Birding Miscellany - Patrick Baglee


After spending three years birding in New York City, Patrick Baglee has
spent the last two years living and birding in northern California. He will
show films and sketches made during birding trips locally in the South Bay
of San Francisco, and farther afield on trips to Hawaii and Texas. Covering
species in each of the three states, and one or two more unusual occurrences
typical of the Bay area in spring and autumn, Patrick will offer a
whistle-stop tour of his birding experiences over the last 18 months, and in
particular, will describe his efforts to see, as well as hear, two of North
America's more secretive rail species.


Patrick Baglee, a member of the Linnaean Society of New York, has spoken
previously to the Society on the subject of Dr. E.R.P. Janvrin's
contribution to the Society and ornithology in general in New York State. 


7:30 pm - Current and Projected Effects of Climate Change on Boreal Habitats
and Birds of the Adirondacks - Joan Collins

Boreal forests are especially sensitive and vulnerable to climate change.
Using current research and personal observations, Joan Collins will offer
insights on wildlife changes occurring in boreal habitats of New York's
Adirondacks primarily as a result of climate change. The focus will be on
boreal species such as Black-backed Woodpecker, Olive-sided and
Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, Canada Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Bicknell's Thrush,
Lincoln's Sparrow, Rusty Blackbird, and Blackpoll and Palm Warblers, among
others, and their high and low elevation habitats. Her presentation will
utilize photographs, video, and audio of these iconic species of the
Adirondacks (and a few mammal species too!).


Joan Collins leads birding trips year-round, is a New York State licensed
guide, an Adirondack 46er, and has climbed all the Adirondack fire tower
peaks. She is a past President of the New York State Ornithological
Association and current Editor of New York Birders.




Both presentations are free and will be held in the Linder Theater on the
first floor of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City
(enter at West 77th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue).


All welcome!
