The Ocean State Bird Club is proud to welcome back educator, naturalist, birder, and current Environmental Interpretive Technician at Kinzua Bridge, Bendigo, and Elk State Parks in North Central Pennsylvania, Matt Schenck. During his years working at the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown, RI, Matt earned a strong reputation among the birding community of Rhode Island as one of the state's most reputable birders. Join us on Thursday as the Ocean State Bird Club welcomes back one of Rhode Island's finest birders as he shares his passion, experience, and knowledge about shorebirds.

Zoom Conference with Laura Erickson
Close Encounters of the Bird Kind - Part 2
Laura's latest talk will continue where she left off in March - with more about the many birds she has rehabbed over the years—what she learned about wild species from closely observing their behaviors in such a novel situation, and how she managed to successfully release birds by "hacking them out" in her backyard where they could come for feedings as they figured out the big world.
An OSBC Announcement will be emailed to all OSBC members with the joining instructions for this event.
- Ocean State Bird Club Executive Board
“But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all.”
