Dove Demonstration at Salt Air Farm (please register if you plan to attend!)
Saturday, January 20, 2018, 11AM

Join Prudence Heston of Salt Air Farm in Cutchogue on January 20th (rain/snow date 1/27) at 11 am for a demonstration and talk on doves bred and raised for event releases. These birds are a hybrid cross between a rock dove and a racing pigeon giving them the good looks of the dove with the homing ability of a well bred racing pigeon. Originally imported from top breeders in Belgium they gracefully walk the line between a domesticated bird and a wild bird making them both fun to work with and fascinating to observe.

Salt Air at farm is located at 1535 New Suffolk Rd. in Cutchogue (map). Please use bathroom facilities prior to arrival as no facilities are available on site. And, remember to dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear (boots are recommended) as this encounter will take place entirely outdoors. We look forward to your visit!

To register: call 516-526-9095 or email info@northforkaudubon.org


Documentary: A Murder of Crows
Sunday, February 11, 2018, 2:30PM
Floyd Memorial Library, Greenport (map)

Although cultures around the world may regard the crow as a scavenger, bad omen, or simply a nuisance, this bad reputation might overshadow what could be regarded as the crow's most striking characteristic – its intelligence. New research indicates that crows are among the brightest animals in the world.

Join us at Greenport's Floyd Memorial Library to watch this PBS Nature documentary on crows.
