Flanders Nature Center Cool Birding in Arizona Hot Spots

10/17/2017

Church Hill Road , Woodbury, CT Phone: 203-263-3711.

7 pm. Flanders will be hosting area naturalist Chris Wood an active birder most of his life and long-time Woodbury resident who hikes, birds, and photographs locally, nationally, and internationally collecting photographs of birds, habitats, and environmental conditions. Using his extensive photo collection he will illustrate and explain the natural diversity represented by the birds of southern Arizona and the unique conditions that make this one of North America's premier birding locales. Sonoran habitats that bring in rare birds from Mexico; artificial watering holes that provide oases for birds in the deserts; and mountain ranges that contribute to habitat diversity all combine to make it a birding paradise. This is an opportunity for more information on birds and landscapes very different from those found in Connecticut, and insights on the importance of habitat diversity and conservation and the value to birds of proper resource management.
