“Our Wonderful Wood Warblers” program celebrates the diversity and indisputable beauty of Warblers. These are amongst the smallest, yet most brilliantly colored birds in the Commonwealth. Finding and viewing these beauties often becomes a passion for many birdwatchers. Schamerhorn’s program includes a majority of Virginia’s species, some that are only present for brief periods during spring and fall migration, plus many that reside and breed here as well. The program will be a multimedia experience that presents this group of beautiful little birds utilizing sight, sound, and stories displayed with award winning photography and HD video clips with matching bird songs. It’s a great refresher course for springtime singing, or just sit back and enjoy their beauty. Entertaining for all age and birding skill levels.
