Join us for a presentation by Pamela Hunt. The eastern whip-poor-will was once a familiar bird across much of New Hampshire.  Today it is rare except in a few scattered locations.  Pam is an expert on whip-poor-wills.  She will present a slide program that will show us this interesting bird of the night and inform us about its conservation, ecology, and the research conducted to better understand this unusual species.  Pam is an avian conservation biologist with NH Audubon.  She became interested in birds as a youngster when an uncle took her birding.  She has degrees from Cornell, Univ of Montana, and a PhD from Dartmouth College.  She coordinates and prioritizes bird research and monitoring in NH.  She is also active in dragonfly monitoring and mapping.
