Go ‘Birdwatching’ at the Leach Library!

On Thursday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. the Leach Library will host master birder and author, Eric Masterson, for his presentation, ‘Birdwatching in New Hampshire.’ This delightful audiovisual presentation will focus on the ‘best of the best’ of New Hampshire’s birding, with photos and anecdotes taken from Mr. Masterson’s book, Birdwatching in New Hampshire. Drawing upon his extensive knowledge of the habits and habitats of New Hampshire birds, Mr. Masterson will focus on the ‘when’ and ‘where’ questions of finding birds. Eric Masterson is originally from Ireland. After spending several years in Africa, he returned home to finish his studies in ornithology at University College Dublin. He moved to New Hampshire in 1999, and has since worked in the field of environmental conservation, including at New Hampshire Audubon, the Piscataquog Land Conservancy, and currently at the Harris Center in Hancock. He serves on the New Hampshire Rare Bird Committee and is a seasonal editor for the quarterly journal New Hampshire Bird Records. The event is free and open to the public, and will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Seating is limited to the first 90 people. Light refreshments will be served.
