Friends of the Library Cultural Event
Birds of the White Mountains with Stephen Hale, owner of Open World Explorers in Barrington
The presentation is designed as a virtual tour on a regular hiking trail in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The virtual tour documents both common and uncommon birds beginning in the low lying valleys with intermittent streams, ponds, and wetlands within a setting of northern hardwoods forest. The tour progresses through mixed forest with increasing fir and spruce community birds until reaching the uppermost boreal forest zone, which hosts a distinctive assemblage of birds reserved for the most hearty hikers. This presentation is also set up as a bird quiz to allow you to test your bird ID skills, with pointers readily available for assistance.
