    What: Introduction to Naturalist Field Journals

    Where: Cool Spring Preserve

    When: Sunday, June 4, 2017 

    Time: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

    Cost: Free

    Instructor: Carolyn Duckworth

    Learn techniques to begin or diversify your field journaling, and follow in the footsteps of Joseph Grinnell and John Muir. Field journals have long been used by naturalists to record regular observations of the natural world. Such detailed information, which may include species counts, illustrations, weather patterns, and notable seasonal changes are used by naturalists for pleasure, scientific and historic inquiry. Field journals encourage keen observations to gain insight and record lasting impressions of the natural world.

    This event will be led by Carolyn Duckworth, a professional writer for the National Park Service. Carolyn has spent decades studying and perfecting the practice of keeping naturalists field journals. 

    This class will begin with a brief introduction to field journaling, then a trip outdoors to explore Cool Spring Preserve to acquire inspiration. Participants should bring a small (approximately 5" x 7") sketchbook or notebook, preferably with no lines, a pencil (#2) and a pen of their choice. PVAS will have some extra supplies available for use.

Sandy Sagalkin, working with Battlefield staff, has assisted the Battlefield in surveying the grassland birds in the area during the spring and summer of 2014. So far, they have counted 86 species that have used the area as a stopover or residence, including Blue Grosbeaks, Yellow-breasted Chats, Common Yellowthroats, Willow Flycatchers, Prairie Warblers and Grasshopper Sparrows.

      Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along drinking water.

      PVAS Trip Leader: Jim Farley

      The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a birding trip to the National Conservation Training Center outside Shepherdstown on Saturday, October 21.

      The trip is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, but space will be limited and registration by Wednesday, October 16 is required. Children will be welcome.

      After checking in at the guard station, please meet in the 'blue' parking area.

      For more information or any questions you may have, please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026.

      The bird walk will highlight fall migrants and raptors.

      The Center's 538-acre campus is not normally open to the public, so this is a wonderful opportunity to visit the campus and enjoy their trails while birding. 

      The campus contains a mix of fields and forest, providing good habitat for a rich variety of bird species such as sparrows, juncos, raptors, bluebirds, woodpeckers and waterfowl. One of the highlights of the bird walk is observing NCTC's active eagle nest. 

      The trip will last about two and a half hours and involve walking about two miles over moderate terrain.

      Everyone should plan to wear comfortable walking or hiking boots that can protect against possible muddy trails and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions. It is also a good idea to bring along sunscreen and drinking water.

      PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

      The trip may be cancelled if there is bad weather.

      Topic: The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow

      Presenter: Wil Hershberger

      Cost: free

      Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, November 8th at 7:00 PM for our regular monthly program.

      Mr. Hershberger, local bird expert, presents “The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow".

      Wil Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, is one of the area's leading naturalists.

      Inspired by Don Kroodsma’s, “The Singing Life of Birds,” Wil started to listen carefully to the songs of Vesper Sparrows. Wil had recorded Vesper Sparrows in southern Berkeley County, WV years ago, but found that they were all gone. The only location with more than one or two male Vesper Sparrows during the breeding season was found to be the Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, MD. 

      In Wil’s talk we’ll learn about the Vesper Sparrow’s natural history, how we study bird songs, the amazing way we can “see” bird songs, and the fascinating way that Vesper Sparrows compose their songs.

      Wil has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than two decades and his work has been published in magazines, calendars, and books. He is coauthor of "the Songs of Insects", a book and audio CD published by Houghton-Mifflin Company. He is also an instructor of our very popular Birding 101 class.

      His recordings of birds, frogs and insects are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.

      His website can be found at natureimagesandsounds.com
