Bald eagle at the Montclair Hawkwatch, Sandy Sorkin


October 13, 2021

Topic and speaker to be announced


November 10, 2021


with Rick Wright

Sure, we all like to watch birds, but this may be your first chance to build one yourself. In this friendly competition, where everyone keeps their own score, birds are presented one feature at a time—wing or tail or eye or bill or feet—eventually making up a complete bird image. It's fun, it's sometimes easy, and it's sure to make you a better observer of the multitude of details that make a bird a bird.

Rick Wright leads Birds and Art tours in Europe and the Americas for Victor Emanuel Nature Tours. A resident of Bloomfield, he is also a member of the Montclair Bird Club's executive board.
