Biophilia at PhippsFinding Pittsburgh's Winter Birds

We often think there are no birds here in the winter but that's far from the case in the City of Pittsburgh. On November 2 I will give a short presentation at Phipp's Biophilia about Pittsburgh's winter birds and where to find them.

Come to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, PA 15213 at 5:30pm for networking and refreshments. My half-hour presentation begins at 6:00pm followed by Q&A.


Friday November 17, 2017 -- 10:00am

Why do peregrine falcons nest at the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning? Where did they come from and where do they go?

Come to the University of Pittsburgh's annual Audubon Day at Hillman Library on November 17 where I'll tell the story of Pitt's peregrine falcons. Watch this space for more details.

  1. My wife and I are avid bird photographers in Point Breeze. Our current project is to photograph and document the behavior of a nesting pair of Cooper’s Hawks outside our bedroom windows. Loads of fun and we’d love to share it with you! Tom (and Chris)

  2. I want to attend the event at Schenley Park as you have listed for April 30, 2017. But I see you say it is in conjunction with Three Rivers Birding Club. But I see Three Rivers Birding Club has an event in a different location at the same time. I will be driving from West Virginia and want to make sure the Schenley Park event is still happening. Thank you for any reply.

    1. Yes, the Schenley Event is still happening. See you at Bartlett Shelter at 8am, April 30. (It’s the height of migration so Three Rivers Birding Club has scheduled several events on the same day.)
