SPEAKER: Joe Giunta
TOPIC: Sparrows and Allies in the NYC Area
At our first monthly meeting after our summer break, our announcements and coffee break will be followed by a slide-enhanced presentation about many of the birds that are referred to as “LBJs” (little brown jobs). We all should leave with a better understanding and knowledge of sparrows and related birds that tend to be dismissed as too hard to identify.
A frequent guest speaker for SSAS, Joe Giunta has led bird walks for the Nature Conservancy, NYC Audubon, Brooklyn Bird Club, Road Scholars, and the South Fork Natural History Society. He has taught birding classes at Brooklyn Botanic Garden since 2001. He is the owner of Happy Warblers, a travel and education company, and has birded extensively in the U.S., Panama, Belize, and Costa Rica. Join us!
