The Queens County Bird Club will be meeting at the Alley Pond Environmental 
Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd, Douglaston, NY 11362  >Map of location< 
<>  at 8:00 pm this Wednesday, November 20, 2019.  Free 
admission.   Refreshments will be served starting 7:30pm.

 Our guest speaker will be Kaitlyn Parkins, presenting "Nocturnal Neighbors: 
The Bats of New York City”
         Bats, one of the largest mammal groups, play a vital role in our 
ecosystem, even in New York City.  Kaitlyn Parkins, a conservation biologist 
for New York City Audubon, will discuss the secret lives of the bats that live 
in and migrate through the city—who is here, what they are doing, and where to 
find them.  She will present findings from over five years of research, 
including how bats use green roofs as foraging habitat. She will also discuss 
the threats to our bat populations and some of the work being done to mitigate 
these threats.
         Parkins studied at Fordham University, receiving a master’s degree in 
ecology and a graduate certificate in conservation biology.  Her other field 
work includes monitoring bird-building collisions in the city and studying 
beach-nesting shorebirds and colonial waterbirds in the NY Harbor.

Hope to see you Wednesday!
