"Birding Central Panama"
with John Hershey

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Crandall Library, Glens Falls
Emerald Toucanette   Broad-billed
John Hershey will present “Birding Central Panama” on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at Crandall Library in downtown Glens Falls at 7 p.m. The talk will describe his spring birding trip to two popular ecolodges in central Panama: Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Anton and Canopy Tower in the lowland rainforest of Soberania National Park. Many colorful, iconic tropical birds will be illustrated with photos including toucans, parrots, trogons, motmots, antbirds, oropendolas, hummingbirds, warblers, and tanagers. Other subjects will include tropical butterflies, reptiles, monkeys, and the quirky, painted “red devil” buses. 
Hershey, a resident of Clifton Park, is a former board member and secretary of the Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club (HMBC) and a former board member of the Audubon Society of the Capital Region. He regularly leads HMBC field trips to Vischer Ferry Preserve, as well as Cohoes Flats and Peebles Island and Fox Hill Road. He is officially “semi-retired” and works part-time in private practice in psychology.
