I have a slide presentation (in its fourth iteration) that I give every year at our local library (and other places when asked). When I started doing it many years ago, it was with slides I purchased from Cornell and a 60 year old, highly functioning, but very loud slide projector. I made a tape of the songs and had someone advance through that. I changed over to power point several years ago, and tried embedding the songs into it. I was so excited that I could do that. But it only works about 20% of the time, usually at home, and has caused me great anxiety, because I am very much an audial birder, and it’s a big part of my presentation. I have someone coming this afternoon that I’ve hired to hopefully fix things this afternoon. But any advice would be appreciated.
What I really need though is some photos of our three most common wood thrushes…veery, wood thrush and hermit thrush. If anyone is willing to share those with me, I would be so grateful, and of course give credit. My email addy is [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>, and my talk is next Wednesday evening at 6:30 at Deborah Rawson Library. I am always amazed that people keep coming, since I’ve done it so much. On Saturday, I lead my 21st walk at the Mills Riverside Park at 7, if anyone is interested. I am so thankful for our community and how people have been so generous with their own pictures. Isis, my daughter, lost almost all of her pictures over a year ago, and the person coming this afternoon is going to be looking at that also. That was pretty disappointing to her. I know she had thrush pictures, as I saw them. Spring is finally here and the explosion has started. Evergreen Erb in Jericho
