Red-bellied Woodpecker - Catherine Hamilton

Not really for me. I just wanted to draw your attention to a few cool things that are coming up or occuring in the world of birds right now.

Raptor Conference – Audubon Greenwich – May 7th and 8th

First off Audubon Greenwich will be holding a Raptor Conservation conference at the Audubon Centre in Greenwich on May 7th and 8th (click here for details). It should be a really cool day with a chance to get to hear about raptor conservation projects both locally and continentally. With Guests from Hawk Mountain and Veracruz it’s a dream line up for anyone interested in hawkwatching, raptors or conservation. I’ll be there manning the hawkwatch and hope to get to meet some of the hawkwatchers from the Tri-state area and beyond. It’ll be a great chance to meet up with like minded people and to share some tips, experiences and gossip with your local hawkwatching fraternity as well as to find out how to get more involved in raptor conservation projects. You can register online for the event at the bottom of the page!

What have Lukes friends been up to?

All About Birds

If you have been hibernating this month you might have missed Catherine Hamilton’s online exhibition on the All About Birds website (click here). Go check it out, the artwork is absolutely stunning and I’m not just saying that because I am heavily biased. Move over David Sibley! A few of the pieces were produced right here in Greenwich including one of my particular favorites the Red-bellied Woodpecker – go check it out.

Benjamin Van Dorens Blog

New York birder, Greenwich Hawk watcher, and blogger extraordinaire Benjamin has recently become president of the New York State Young Birders club as well so congratulations to him. Here is a link to his blog from a day we spent chasing birds up in New York State (click here)

Birds of North America Fashion Line

At a recent Chelsea art gallery opening I ran into a nice artist who was telling me about his passion for birding and about his girlfriends fashion line that takes its collection names from birds (check it out here).

I like Catherine’s artwork. She presents some of the birds in poses that seems to exude personality while other drawings appear to be more of a scientific nature. She writes well too-I’ve read some of her blog posts. I’ll look forward to reading her book some day.-thanks for the blatent advertising-I link to all about birds all the time.
