Songbirds of the Northeast

with naturalist John Root

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak the Songbirds of the Northeast program is postponed. Our program committee will reschedule this event as soon as we are able to.

Bird songs are one of life’s simple pleasures! They bring joy to us year-round, from beautiful summer mornings, to crisp winter afternoons. And thanks to our diverse environment, Connecticut is blessed with a wide variety of songbirds.

Naturalist John Root will lead an engaging presentation of photos and recordings to help us all learn which birds sing which songs. He’ll share insights into their behaviors and their specialized adaptations.

John will also explain how you can attract these birds – plus butterflies, bees, and other beneficial creatures! – to your yard by planting the flowers, shrubs, and trees they love. Some of these plants will be available for purchase right at the library.

This presentation is great for everyone, from novices to serious birders.

The program will take place on Tuesday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library. The library is located at 234 Kensington Road, in Berlin, Connecticut.

Please register for this event at, or by contacting the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library at 860-828-7126.

This informative presentation will be hosted by the Berlin Land Trust. We look forward to seeing you on April 21st.
