CAS UPCOMING EVENTS
- November 14th 7:00pm – CAS Regular monthly meeting – Topic will be “The Magnificent Seven” presented by Jeff Hall. The Magnificent Seven: A Close Look at Seven Iconic Birds. North America’s tallest bird was once the rarest…a bird that feeds by ‘lurching about as if intoxicated’…a shorebird named after the new moon…a bird that looks ‘as though an orchid has spread its lovely wings and flown’…a warbler that is connected to one of the 20th century’s most notorious murders…a bird that a national news network called ‘the most adorable’…and a bird that is one of the most iconic of all—this program provides an in-depth portrayal of each. Jeffrey Hall taught biology and served as President of Washington Crossing Audubon in New Jersey for many years before retiring and moving to Franklin, Pennsylvania. He is now President of Bartramian Audubon Society and active in Seneca Rocks Audubon Society as well as other nature and historic preservation groups in northwestern Pennsylvania. He has been an instructor at the Institute for Learning in Retirement at Slippery Rock University. Hall’s photographs and articles have appeared in Living Bird, NJ Audubon, Underwater Naturalist, Cassinia, and many other publications. He has given presentations to over 50 nature, birding, and photography groups, including recently Roger Tory Peterson Institute, Delaware Valley Ornithological Club, Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland, and Three Rivers Birding Club of Pittsburgh.
