The Wonder of Bird Migration at Livingston Library

During autumn, hundreds of bird species take to the skies for warmer climates.

In this program on Saturday Sep 28, we will explore  why birds migrate, their varying methods of migration, the latest theories on the strategies that birds use to navigate as well as a look at the challenges they face in migration, both natural and manmade.

The program finishes with a discussion of the different species to keep an eye out for as they come to settle in our area for the winter or continue South to warmer climes.

The presenter is Pete Axelrod, Education and Community Outreach Coordinator of Wild Birds Unlimited of Scotch Plains.

Pete has been a nature enthusiast since age 5.  His passion led him to study Wildlife Biology and Natural History Interpretation.   Pete has volunteered in avian population studies, wild bird rehabilitation, habitat restoration, wildlife education and leading birding ventures throughout New Jersey. (with NJ Audubon, Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, The Raptor Trust) He enjoys cycling, kayaking and hiking and always has his binoculars handy.  

The program is free and open to all.
