Spring bluebird presentation planned at CCC

PLATTSBURGH — The New York State Bluebird Society is offering “All About Bluebirds — and More,” a PowerPoint presentation by John Rogers, at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 6, at Clinton Community College’s Stafford Theatre.

Rogers’ presentation includes the life history of the eastern bluebird, nest box management, other birds that commonly nest in bluebird boxes and more. He has maintained a trail of bluebird nest boxes in central New York for more than 40 years and has fledged more than 13,000 eastern bluebirds. Rogers is a co-founder and lifetime director of the New York State Bluebird Society and a former director of the North American Bluebird Society.

The focus is on bluebirds, but Rogers also shares his passion for the natural world in hopes the audience will take in some broader and deeper messages about nature and life, a press release states. Also included are a few wildflowers, butterflies and quotes by some of the great naturalists of the past.

There is no cost to attend and family members of all ages are welcome.

Following the talk there will be refreshments available.

For those interested in attracting bluebirds to their property, the NYSBS will offer advice on box placement and monitoring. There will be nest boxes and mounting poles available for purchase at special rates.

Contact Jim Engelbrecht (NYSBS) at 297-3278 for more information.
