UPCOMING MEETINGS

Monday, June 6, 2016 at 7:15 pm
Terry Sullivan
Author & Photographer 
Presents: 
My Sag Harbor Bird Notebook

Weather permitting we will be taking a short walk before 
the meeting.

Many local folks know Terry Sullivan as a singer of traditional Irish, African, Spanish, and Yiddish music. He followed the path of his mentor and friend, Pete Seeger, and sang onstage with him more than 100 times. For the last 20 years, he has also written stories about nature, including birding, following yet another mentor and friend, Larry Penny, who generously wrote the forward to Terry’s new book, My Sag Harbor Bird Notebook. The book’s subtitle is A conversational survey, in poetry, prose, photography, and prints. The tone of the book is a fireside chat illustrated by some spectacular shots, contrasted with some comedic flavor to the rest of the book.

Mr. Sullivan will read selections from the book, as well as present copies of his photos and drawings, while explaining how he’s captured these striking images with a very basic technique you can adopt for your own local nature walks. Copies of the book will be available for signing.

Ornithological Fieldwork in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea 
By Paul Sweet
​The island of New Guinea is home to over 700 species of birds—that is, 700 and still counting. In the fall of 2014 Paul Sweet joined a team of vertebrate specialists from the American Museum of Natural History on an expedition to the highlands of Papua New Guinea—the nation that occupies the eastern half of the island. The highlands are one of the most remote areas in the world. The expedition was in search of new specimens and new species. Sweet will talk about the adventures of fieldwork and discuss some of the expedition’s discoveries.For more information on the Papua New Guinea expedition, see website www.amnh.org/learn-teach/adults/scicafe/scicafe-explore21-papua-new-guinea

Paul Sweet who is the collections manager in the Ornithology Department.of The American Museum of Natural History in NYC was born in Bristol, England. He has been interested in birds for as long as he can remember. After completing a degree in zoology at the University of Liverpool, he traveled widely in Asia and the Americas before working at the Raffles Museum in Singapore. In 1991 he moved to New York City to work at the American Museum of Natural History.
