The Brooklyn Bird Club presents a special summer film screening!

"Young of the Year"

Tuesday, July 17th @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Brooklyn Public Library, Central Branch at Grand Army Plaza

Between the predators, the tourists, and the long migration ahead, life is a challenge for the roseate tern, especially during the first summer of life. This documentary follows the first summer of life for a cohort of terns as they prepare for their first long migration from the coast of Massachusetts to the beaches of Brazil.

Presented by filmmaker Kris Holodak, a screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A with Kris about her experiences in creating this film.

Katie Fallon presents: Vulture: The Private Life of an Unloved Bird

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Brooklyn Public Library, Central Branch at Grand Army Plaza

Vultures are often overlooked, underappreciated, and unloved, despite the vital role they play healthy ecosystems. Worldwide, vultures are more likely to be threatened or endangered than any other group of raptor, but in the United States Turkey and Black Vultures may be increasing in number. Based on Katie Fallon's new book, this presentation will discuss the life and times of the noble Turkey Vulture, including its feeding, nesting, and roosting habits, migratory behaviors, and common misconceptions.

Katie Fallon lives in West Virginia and is co-founder of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the region's wild birds through research, education, and rehabilitation.
