Kathryn Schneider will present “Birding the Hudson Valley”

          KATHRYN J. SCHNEIDER, a Hudson Valley native, has spent decades 
studying the behavior, ecology, and distribution of birds. An award-winning 
author, teacher, and conservationist, she is a past president of the New York 
State Ornithological Association.
          Kathryn will describe her recent book "Birding the Hudson Valley", 
which provides encouragement for bird enthusiasts to expand their horizons.
          Although an estimated four hundred thousand Hudson Valley residents 
feed, observe, or photograph birds, the vast majority of New Yorkers enjoy 
their birdwatching activities mostly around the home. More than just a 
collection of bird-finding tips, this book explores Hudson Valley history, 
ecology, bird biology, and tourism. It describes sites in every county in the 
region, including farms, grasslands, old fields, wetlands, orchards, city 
parks, rocky summits, forests, rivers, lakes, and salt marshes.
          Designed for birders of all levels of skill and interest, this 
beautifully illustrated book contains explicit directions to more than eighty 
locations, as well as useful species accounts and hints for finding the 
valley’s most sought-after birds.
          Signed copies of Kathryn’s book will be available for sale after the 

Hope to see you Wednesday!
