Saw-whet Owl Banding, Oct. 27th

Saw-whet Owl

Join Northeast PA Audubon on Friday, October 27 at 8pm in watching Darryl and Jackie Speicher of Pocono Avian Research Center as they capture, measure, examine and release saw-whet owls. They capture them in mist nest which are fine nets that are stretched across an area. They put a recorder on one side of the net and when we are lucky , the owls fly into the net where Darryl retrieves them. This will be a special treat if you have never seen these little owls, as they are only eight inches tall.

We have been joining Pocono Avian Research Center to observe this owl banding for several years and 2009 was our best year as they caught and banded nine saw-whets that night. Nine adults and children had the opportunity to hold and release these little owls. The year before they captured only one but they have caught at least one owl nearly every year we have attended including 2010.

We schedule this on a Friday night so children can attend, as they don’t have school the next day. We hope you will bring your children as we hope this kind of event will expand their interest in nature. Our children are the future stewards so hopefully they will grow up wanting to protect life on this planet.

This is an exciting event for both children and adults so come and join us.

Conservation Partners present FREE forum on Natural Landscaping

On Tuesday, August 22nd at 7 pm in the Park Street Complex in Honesdale, Ed Perry from the National Wildlife Federation will present a seminar on Neighborly Natural Landscaping: How to decrease mowing and increase pollinators and birds. This workshop will focus on ways each of us can reduce the population decline of bird species and pollinators right in our own backyards. Topics will include a discussion of what to plant, where to plant and where to get your plants, how to start a meadow, and how all this benefits our waterways.

Sarah Hall-Bagdonas, president of the Northeast PA Audubon Society will also present on native versus invasive species for this area. Each attendee will also receive a free “Seeds Ball”. This event is being sponsored by local Wayne/Pike County partners in conservation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA, Audubon Society, Wayne Conservation District, and Delaware Highlands Conservancy with the National Wildlife Federation.

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT:

The alarming decline of native pollinators has been well documented, but what is less well known, is the decline and potential loss of numerous bird species.  A recent National Audubon Society report states: Our model predicts that 314 North American bird species are seriously threatened by climate change by the end of this century.  

Since our changing climate is already affecting birds and pollinators, anything done to reduce carbon pollution will benefit those species.  For example, running a lawn mower for one hour emits the same amount of carbon pollution as driving a car for one hundred miles, so reduced mowing will not only help rein in carbon pollution, but also help our native birds and pollinators that are already feeling the heat.

WHEN: Tuesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm

WHERE:  Park Street Complex, 648 Park Street in Honesdale, near Wayne Memorial Hospital

SPEAKERS:  Ed Perry, National Wildlife Federation and Sarah Hall Bagdonas – Northeast Audubon Society

PRESENTED BY:  The National Wildlife Federation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA Audubon Society, Delaware Highlands Conservancy and the Wayne Conservation District.
