Indoor Program: 308: A Photographic Big Year – Patrick Comins

January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Patrick Comins didn’t set out to do a big photo year in 2014, but by mid-January it was game on. The madness didn’t stop until New Year’s Eve 2014 with a trip on a cod boat on a bitterly cold day. By sundown he had captured #308, a Dovekie that landed close to the boat. Along the way Patrick captured some bad photos of common birds, some good photos of uncommon birds, and decent photos of some spectacular rarities such as Whiskered Tern, Northern Wheatear and Cassin’s and Couch’s Kingbirds. Come share the adventure and learn something about bird ID when we hear why some distant or even blurry photos can qualify as identifiable. Patrick is the Director of Bird Conservation at Audubon Connecticut since 2000, overseeing Connecticut’s Important Bird Areas and other conservation areas.
