    Program details:
    New York State hosts an exceptional variety of shorebirds every year, with a real potential, anywhere, almost any time, for many additional vagrant species. This talk will focus on tactics for finding and studying these beautiful birds, using clues such as season, local conditions, weather, and location. This workshop will be presented by Shai Mitra, editor of the Kingbird, the quarterly publication of the New York State Ornithological Association; co-compiler of bird records for the New York City and Long Island region; and chair of the Rhode Island Avian Records Committee.  He has studied birds in the northeastern United States and around the world for more than 40 years.
