Greg and Cathy DuBois are members of the Will County Audubon Chapter and are avid birders. Having traveled to multiple states for birding adventures, they have accumulated a great many photos and memories. One of their favorite spots is in Northwest Ohio where The Biggest Week in American Birding festival takes place along the southern shore of Lake Erie each year in early May. Join Greg and Cathy as they present their program on warblers and The Biggest Week in American Birding festival, billed by organizers as the Warbler Capitol of the World.
The family of wood warblers will be briefly discussed to highlight the great diversity of these colorful migratory birds. Then, photos of 42 different species of birds will be shown, including 16 species of warblers all taken by Greg at the annual May festival. Finally, the festival itself will be discussed as a brief intro into the location, facilities and events for those who might be looking for a new birding adventure.
All meetings are free and open to the public.
