Event Site: Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge Auditorium
Event Description: Wonderful Waterfowl Workshop
Join Paul Baicich for a presentation and field study on North American waterfowl. Swans, geese, and ducks constitute one of the most interesting and important family groups of birds on the continent. They are found everywhere - at least everywhere there is water or wetlands - and are relatively approachable for study and appreciation. They have provided a sporting avocation to millions of waterfowlers over many decades. This presentation will also describe new avenues of waterfowl appreciation and conservation and then will go out on the Refuge to cover the essentials of practical waterfowl identification at Bombay Hook.

Paul J. Baicich is the creator of Great Birding Projects (greatbirdingprojects.com). He has been an active conservationist and birder since his early teens in New York City. A former editor of the American Birding Association, he edited the "ABA Birdfinding Guides," Birding, and served as ABA's Director of Conservation and Public Policy. Paul writes regularly for birding magazines, providing insight to the issue of bird-compatible shade-grown coffee and many other bird related topics. He served as chair of the Bird Education Network (BEN), currently serves on the Management Board of the Prairie Pothole Joint Venture, and is an advocate for the Federal Duck Stamp program.
