Birds and Climate Change
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Mapleton Park Rotary Lodge
Speaker: Peter Thomas
Details: “Climate change will impact New Brunswick forest birds in several ways. Timing of migration and nesting will change for some species, and the distribution and abundance of forest birds will change over the coming decades for several reasons. And all the while, the changing climate will cause forest habitat to change as well. What may the New Brunswick forest bird community look like in the years to come? And what sort of added pressures will land birds face as climate change effects become more pronounced. Join Peter Thomas of Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service to learn more about forest birds and climate change in New Brunswick.”

Jemseg Waterfowl and Spring Migrants Birding Field Trip
Time: 8:30am
Leader and Location: Meet leader Paul Mansz at Brundage Point River Centre, Ferry Road in Grand Bay-Westfield
Details: “Large numbers of waterfowl are expected, and a variety of other early Spring migrants may be counted upon. We always enjoy a surprise or two as we travel the river course. We will work our way up the river towards Gagetown with stops at Nerepis, Hibernia, and points in between. As the Gagetown ferry service is not expected to be running, we will head over to Highway 105 where we will move toward Jemseg and then Lower Jemseg, or to Sheffield and Maugerville. Flood/freshet levels will determine our exact route.

Please bring a lunch, binoculars, field guide(s), and a notebook and dress for a variety of weather conditions, as it can be quite variable over the course of the trip.”
