Audubon meeting to focus on spring bird songs
The April meeting of the Potomac Valley Audubon Society will feature a presentation by local naturalist Wil Hershberger on the spring songs of local birds.
The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, at the U.S. Geological Survey's Leetown Science Center, 11649 Leetown Road (County Route 1), Kearneysville.
Interested members of the public are welcome.
Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, has been a naturalist all his life with a special concentration on birds.
He has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than a decade and his work has been published in magazines, calendars and books.
Most recently, he is co–author of "The Songs of Insects," a full color book and audio CD that has just been published by Houghton-Mifflin Company.
His recording of birds, frogs and insects are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
