The program gives you intimate views of the many bird species found on wilderness lakes, mountain summits, boreal bogs, Lake Champlain, as well as those winter visitors from even further north. Enjoy intimate views of Common Loon, Spruce Grouse, Boreal Chickadee, Great Grey Owl, and numerous warblers, hawks, wading birds, and more. Jeff will also have an assortment of large framed and double-matted prints available to purchase, that were recently on display at art centers in the Adirondacks.
