SPEAKER: Deborah Rivel and Kellye Rosenheim

TOPIC: Birdwatching in NYC and on Long Island

Our guest speakers this month are the authors of Birdwatching in New York City and on Long Island, a detailed insider’s guide to the best places to find birds in all seasons, which was published last May. The authors will share what they learned while researching and writing the book, which provides seasonal information for popular birding sites and ones off the beaten path. It includes the latest information on the seasonal status and distribution of more than 400 species, with 39 maps, precise directions, and over 50 photographs.

Deborah Rivel is an award-winning independent wildlife film producer/director. Since 2004, she has been creating nature-focused products, including the first Peterson Field Guide apps for iPhone and ringtones for mobile devices via her company, Wildtones.com. Raised in New Jersey, she is a longtime resident of NYC and also Cape May, NJ. Deb is a board member of Audubon New York and of Dr. Irene Pepperberg’s avian cognition research project, The Alex Foundation. An avid bird photographer who regularly explores the wilds of NYC and the NJ beaches for subjects, she has traveled to six continents in search of birds.

Kellye Rosenheim grew up in Louisiana, where she was surrounded by all manner of wildlife, but took up birdwatching in NYC’s Central Park. She has led walks for The Nature Conservancy and New York City Audubon, where she now works as director of development.
