Monthly Meetings

 

December 6: Jim Wilson, Nature Saint John: New Brunswick’s Newest Avian Immigrant, The Wild Turkey (via Zoom)

Never in our history has a new bird discovered our province on foot – until now. Slowly and quietly during the past two decades, hundreds of Wild Turkeys eluded border officials and slipped into New Brunswick from Maine, where a vibrant population of the birds is firmly established in all 16 counties. But how does a bird of this size, a species that was never here historically, cope with finding food in deep winter snow and cold, compete with native bird species and evade potential new predators? Well, Wild Turkeys are doing just that, and quite successfully. Our Wild Turkeys now number in the thousands. This talk will explain how they do it.rsonally researching this topic for some time.

  1. Looking forward to Mr Poirier’s presentation on Polar Bears!! Climate change is and will continue to have an impact on all of us.

  2. Is the June 13 the walk in the marsh at 6.30 am or pm?

  3. Hello
    I was wondering if I could sign up for emails to keep me informed as a back yard birder sure could use some company with the same interest
    Thanks in advance Sheila Whalen

  4. Hi Sheila,

    Yes I can add you to the club’s email list. There are not a great deal of postings regarding feeders but some of our members are very keen birders.
    There are a number of avenues. Have you checked out Project Feeder Watch? You could join eBird and see what some local birders might be posting for sightings. You could join the Nature NB Listserv for provincial comments. If you have any questions about these please send me an email, gadd1313@nb.sympatico.ca Peter
