Upcoming Chapter Meeting & Program 
(Chapter Meeting 7:30pm. Program 8-9:30 pm.)

Autumn-Leaves-Desktop-HD-Wallpaper (800x533) 2Wed., Oct. 15, 8pm. Rick Wright, A widely published writer, popular tour leader, and sought-after speaker, is the author of the new ABA Field Guide to Birds of New Jersey. Topic: What a Bird Book Can Do. We tend to take our field guides for granted. But like any published work, the making of a bird book requires decision after difficult decision, choices upon choices that can make or break a new title in what is today a surprisingly competitive field. Join Rick Wright to discuss what goes into writing a field guide-and what should, ideally, come out of it for the reading birder. Rick birds in Bloomfield and around the world with his wife, Alison Beringer, and their chocolate lab, Gellert.
