January Meeting: Matt Anthony “Magee Marsh”

Please join us at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, January 17th, in Andrews Hall, room 101, for a program given by our speaker, W&M student, Matt Anthony. His topic is a fascinating one….Magee Marsh. Situated on the southern shore of Lake Erie, this is a prime stopover for North American warblers during spring migration. Every year thousands of birders, photographers, and nature lovers flock to this location in spring to witness the unforgettable spectacle of large songbird concentrations preparing to migrate across the great lake toward their breeding grounds in the north. Many birders makebthe trip annually. Magee Marsh is just one of those special places that you feel compelled to return to year after year. You can reasonably expect to see 30 species of warblers (including the vireos) there and the endangered Kirtland’s Warbler often shows up mid-May. Come join us to learn more about this magical spot, so you too can plan a trip there next spring.
