|03:48PM / Wednesday, November 02, 2022|
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Hoffmann Bird Club of Berkshire County announced a presentation free and open to the public on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, at 7:00 PM, at the Guardian Life Insurance Company, 700 South Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201.
The program, "Berkshire Bird Observatory: Origins, Current Projects and Tales from the Field" will be by Ben Nickley, Founder and Director of "Berkshire Bird Observatory."
This is also the Monthly Meeting of the Hoffman Bird Club.
Nickley will discuss Berkshire Bird Observatory's (BBO) origins, aims, current research projects and future endeavors. He'll also show pictures of birds in hands and relate stories from our pilot Spring, Summer and Fall seasons at Jug End State Reservation.
Nickley is a researcher with a passion for birds and the natural landscapes they inhabit. Over the past several years Nickley has traveled across North America to do field studies in many places, mixing in college and grad school along the way.
Of all the places they've been--from the Cypress swamps of the Southeast to the high meadows of the Sierra Nevada--they love nothing more than the Northeastern Deciduous Forest.
BBO contributes data to Green Berkshires' four-year South Taconic biodiversity mapping project. Nickley hopes to garner continued support from the Berkshire community to ensure the longevity of BBO as a social, scientific and conservation institution in this wonderful region.
