The Capital District Humanist Society Presents – For The Birds: Identification, Observation, and Protection

March 12 @ 1:00 pm

Birdwatching – or birding – is enjoyed by people of all ages and walks of life. Carol Quantock will talk about: basic identification tips, useful field guides and apps, quality birding equipment, nests and nesting, habitat, migration, birds as pollinators, preventing window collisions, and protecting birds from predators.

Carol Quantock is an environmental advocate who has been an active birder for over 40 years. She is the vice president of the Audubon Society of the Capital Region, and editor of the ASCR newsletter, Wingbeats. She is currently enrolled in a comprehensive bird biology course at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. She is also a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener.

Ms. Quantock has a BA degree in geography and urban/regional planning from SUNY Albany and a Graduate Management Certificate from Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations. She recently retired as Secretary to the Superintendent of Schools, Scotia-Glenville CSD.
