"BREAKING BIRDING BOUNDARIES"
Jeremy Bensette
Born and raised within the Point Pelee birding area, Jeremy Bensette is a local diehard birder, naturalist, conservationist, wildlife photographer, and tour guide. Having seen 346 species in the province in 2017, Jeremy holds Ontario’s birding Big Year record, thanks largely in part to Ontario’s helpful and supportive birding community! He is also a proud member of the Vortex Optics Field Team, a very active member of the Ontario Field Ornithologists, and a board member for the Essex County Field Naturalists’ Club. He takes any chance he can to share his knowledge and insights about wildlife to friends and strangers alike. Jeremy loves to travel and talk birds… Ask him about his adventures or where the great birds are in Point Pelee or Ontario anytime!
Breaking Birding Boundaries: My Ontario Big Year
Point Pelee area birder and naturalist Jeremy Bensette had a very successful Big Year in 2017, travelling to the far reaches of his home province of Ontario in pursuit of every bird species he could possibly cross paths with. This presentation touches on many of the highlights, lowlights, statistics, results, and antics of his Big Year. Join Jeremy for a summary of his year-long competitive and very social birding journey that turned out to be so much more rewarding than he expected!
As usual we will be fundraising by selling our 50/50 tickets and our MPFN Magic Bean Soup.
MPFN Memberships are Family $45, Single $25, Under 30 FREE
Please invite your friends and neighbours to try out the MPFN. Nature needs Naturalists.
Once again we will be running our GREAT NATURE BOOK SALE. You can bring along any used nature books you'd like to donate. Books donated will be resold for what the buyer thinks they're worth with all proceeds going to club operations.
Don't forget to Lug-A-Mug for refreshments after the meeting.
