The Sussex Bird Club | Shorebird Identification
The Sussex Bird Club | Shorebird IdentificationOnline
Join us for the monthly meeting of The Sussex Bird Club.
Shorebirds are one of those groups that birders, new and advanced alike, can find challenging. There are numerous species, their plumage characteristics can be subtle and variable, and viewing conditions may not always be ideal. Just like with any group, however, there are plenty of ways to make the process of identifying these birds easier and less overwhelming.
If you would like to learn about this wonderful and diverse group of birds, please join us for a presentation by Mike Hudson. Mike lives in Baltimore, MD and has been birding Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania since he was ten years old. He has had a particular love of shorebirds and shorebirding for some time, a love started and grown by his mentor, Bill Stewart. He spent four years as a volunteer bird bander at the Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory in Chestertown, MD, has worked as a field biologist and science educator, and is a former editor of North American Birds. In his spare time, he contributes to his local birding communities as an eBird reviewer in Delaware, a county-level coordinator for the ongoing third Maryland-DC Breeding Bird Atlas, and currently serves as the Vice President of the Delaware Ornithological Society.
The Sussex Bird Club's primary objective is to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of wild birds through guided field trips and monthly meetings about various aspects of birding. Meetings are open to all and beginning birders are always welcome.
