The Bucks County Birders will present the program ”Birds on the Brink” on Tuesday, February 26th at 7:30pm at Peace Valley Nature Center, 170 N. Chapman Road, Doylestown. Admission is free.
Of the 10,064 species of birds in the world, 1,313 are classified, as of 2012, as “threatened.” Of those, 197 are now considered to be “critically endangered,” with some of them “on the brink” of extinction.
During the program, you’ll look at about 25 of these birds – their stories, and how most of them have continued and what has been done enabling that to be.
Birds include an albatross, a sandpiper, an ibis, some cranes, a woodpecker, a rail, a nightjar, some macaws, ducks, some tanagers, a guan, some grebes, curlews, and what is perhaps the largest and rarest owl in the world.
As part of the program, those in attendance will hear a tape-recording made live as a bird was being seen for the first time in about 100 years. The presenter is Armas Hill, a naturalist, birder, and traveler most of his life.
