Program: Musical Presentation by Stephanie Seymour
Wed, November 20, 2019
Stephanie Seymour’s melodic, harmony-laden album “There Are Birds” answers the musical question “What happens when you combine Aimee Mann, Chrissie Hynde, and Karen Carpenter, add a dash of Matthew Sweet, and mix thoroughly with bird-related tales and imagery?” It’s an album about birds, nature, the passage of time and Stephanie’s relationship with these things and more. It’s her story told from a bird’s perspective and birds’ stories revealed through her worldview.
Stephanie became an avid bird watcher when she and Bob married and moved from NYC to NJ. Birds became her passion, eclipsing but never erasing her desire to sing. When a musical lightning bolt struck in early 2018, she decided to combine her love of birds with her love of music and “There Are Birds” was born. The songs were completed in a matter of months. It was as if they had to be written; they simply flowed out of her head onto paper. Stephanie’s love of birds and the natural world is what supports her through her most challenging times. Birding always restores peace and calm to her soul.
CDs will be available for purchase at the meeting.

BCAS Spring Count presents “Using the Christmas Bird Count to View Climate Change”
Wed, January 15
Bergen County Audubon has conducted studies of bird populations for 70 years to monitor how birdlife is doing in our neighborhood. Much has changed in Bergen County’s land use, including dramatic habitat losses. Many species are in long term declines. David Hall, BCAS board member and founder of the BCAS Spring Count presents “Using the Christmas Bird Count to View Climate Change”. David Hall will explore changes in bird migration patterns due to Climate Change: Which species still find our area friendly as a wintering spot, and which ones have been lost.
David Hall is the Director of Field Work for BCAS, a Member of the BCAS Board of Directors and a Board Member of the New Jersey Audubon Society. He has lived in Northern New Jersey since 1976, and has been birding actively here and across the country. He is also a Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC. Dave has participated in several local Christmas Bird Counts since 1978, and has been the Christmas Bird Count compiler for BCAS since about 1995.
