  • Winter Pelagics in the Mid-Atlantic - Putting the "Birrrrr" in Birding
    Monday, May 4, 2015 7:00 pm
    Central Library, Info Commons Lab

    The idea of venturing out on the ocean is a daunting prospect for many birders, but this can be one of the most rewarding times to look for seabirds and other marine life in the Mid-Atlantic. Dovekies, Puffins, Murres, Razorbills, Gannets, Kittiwakes, loons, ducks, cormorants, and gulls can all be found, many quite regularly. Some of these species are much more common in our area than people realize, and we're discovering some things that help us find these birds more reliably. This program is an introduction to what you could expect on one of these trips, the birds we search for, and interesting information about them.

    Paul Guris has been birding the Delaware Valley area for over 40 years. His first boat trip was in his mother's third trimester, so his love of seabirds comes naturally. He is a current member of the New Jersey Bird Records Committee, a past member of the Pennsylvania Ornithological Records Committee, a past president of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club, the former captain of the now retired Nikon / DVOC World Series of Birding team, and the owner / operator of See Life Paulagics, a pelagic tour company specializing in trips in the Mid-Atlantic region.

    The mission of the Brooklyn Bird Club is to encourage and promote birdwatching and conservation in Brooklyn and beyond.
