About Our Virtual Speaker Series: 

Typically, our Speaker Series events are held in-person, but this year we are going to be doing things a little bit differently. Speakers will be conducting their talks “virtually” through Zoom. Following registration, you will be provided with a link for a Zoom conference, which will give you access to the event at the scheduled date and time.

If you are familiar with and already have Zoom installed on your device, then you are all set. If you have never used Zoom before, no worries! Upon clicking the link, Zoom will automatically install itself and you’ll be ready to go! Zoom is a small, safe application that allows you to participate in video conferencing events such as this one! While a camera and microphone are not essential to view the presentation, they do make interaction with the speaker possible during question and answer sessions.

We hope to see virtually!

Lehigh Gap Area Feeder Watch
Feb 12 – Feb 14 all-day
Lehigh Gap Area Feeder Watch

The Feeder Watch survey is conducted by volunteers who live within 15 miles of the Lehigh Gap area. Anyone in that geographic area with at least one bird feeder of any type in their yard, and who can identify the individual species of birds that visit the feeders, is invited to participate in the Feeder Watch. Volunteers are asked to spend a few hours throughout a specified day in February observing their feeders and recording any visitors. Feeder Watchers will also be asked to record weather data and feeder information.

The 2021 Lehigh Gap Area Winter Bird Feeder Watch will take place on the weekend of February 12, 13, and 14. You may choose either February 12, 13, or 14 (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) to do your Feeder Watch count. On that day, we ask that you spend some time throughout the day watching your feeders and identifying and counting all birds you observe. For each species, record the maximum number of each species sighted at one time. This way, you will avoid counting the same birds more than once.
