Birds of Iceland Lecture @ Kellogg Environmental Center:

11/16/2016

500 Hawthorne Avenue, Derby, CT

7 pm. Iceland is often called "The Land of Fire and Ice" because of the many volcanoes and glaciers that populate the country. The country is also a noted birder's paradise famous for its population of Atlantic puffins, ptarmigan, arctic terns, harlequin ducks and white-tailed eagles. Sea birds such as northern fulmars, gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes and great skuas are found in abundance along Iceland's 3,700 miles of coast. Lake areas provide habitat for great northern divers, red-necked phalaropes, and tufted ducks. Inland areas host short-eared owls, European golden plovers, Eurasian woodcock, whimbrels, gyr-falcons and common redshanks amongst other birds. Naturalists Peter and Barbara Rzasa will present a slide show of several Icelandic birds that they photographed in Iceland while traveling Iceland's 832-mile long Ring Road and on their visit to the West Fjords. Join us as they provide information and interesting stories, and a brief overview of Iceland and its natural history.
On display will be their collection of Iceland's volcanic rocks and ash as well as guide books, literature and nature field guides.
