The vast majority of birdwatchers feed, observe, or photograph birds around their homes. In her new book “Birding the Hudson Valley,” author Kathryn Schneider provides tips, guidance, and encouragement for bird enthusiasts of all skill levels and locations to leave their backyards and explore the rich diversity of bird life beyond the bird feeder. Her wide-ranging presentation, which is packed with pictures of birds from the book, includes suggestions for buying binoculars, hints for finding birds, an introduction to bird foods and habitats, and ways to become a better birder. Signed books will be available for sale. Scoville Memorial Library, 38 Main Street Salisbury, CT 06068, 860.435.2838.
