"The Joys of Atlasing"

Julie Hart will present “The Joys of Atlasing” on Wednesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. at the Saratoga Springs Public Library. Hart is the Project Coordinator for the third Breeding Bird Atlas in New York. The atlas project will take place from 2020-2024 and involve thousands of volunteers from across the state. Much has changed in the 20 years since the second breeding bird atlas in New York State.   Hart will talk about the history of the atlas, the importance of atlas data, and how you can get involved. Find out how the third atlas will differ from previous atlases, including how eBird will be used for data entry. Atlasing offers birders a way to explore new areas and provides an intimate look into the daily lives of birds. Atlasing offers an opportunity for beginner and advanced birders to strengthen birdwatching skills while contributing valuable data to a large conservation-oriented project.
Hart is a native Vermonter who started birding while working as a bird conservation intern with National Audubon, Audubon New York, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. She traveled for several years doing field work around the globe before returning to VT to serve as the coordinator for Mountain Birdwatch with the Vermont Center for Ecostudies. She spent several years chasing Bicknell’s Thrush around the mountains of the Northeast and Hispaniola before moving to Wyoming to continue her education. She received her Master’s degree studying the impacts of climate change on Cassia Crossbill in southern Idaho. She is now settled in the Albany area where she is the Project Coordinator for the third Breeding Bird Atlas in New York.  In her travels she has participated in two bird atlases and considers atlasing her favorite type of birding.
