Event Reminder: BIRDS OF THE NEW ENGLAND SWAMP -by Peter Christoph

This Wednesday we’ll be at the Greater Bridgeport Camera Club for a special program:
BIRDS OF THE NEW ENGLAND SWAMP -by Peter Christoph

BIRDS OF THE NEW ENGLAND SWAMP – Wildlife photographer Peter Christoph presents a narrated slideshow, sharing both his award-winning images and his photographic secrets as he brings you inside a typical New England swamp. Peter provides an intimate look into the many varieties of birds that inhabit our swamps, including ospreys and herons, shorebirds, woodpeckers, and other cavity dwellers. Sloshing and crawling through the swamp so you don’t have to, Peter captures the bird’s many activities including building the nest, feeding their young, and catching their prey. You’ll almost want to bring your own wading boots and bug spray for protection as you sit down to watch this captivating presentation.
