Bird Photography Presentation

The Photography Club of Long Island (PCLI) is hosting a presentation on Bird Photography by the North Shore Audubon Society on Wednesday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lapham Room at the Port Washington Public Library and is open to the public.

The presentation will highlight local Long Island birds and the upcoming migration of summer birds coming to our area. Four members of North Shore Audubon will share their excellent bird photos and discuss their technical approach to getting great bird images.

Guest speakers for the evening include:
• Eric Titcomb got into birding and photography about 16 years ago when on a family trip out west he noticed that the birds were different from the ones he saw in New York. Eric says, “traveling to different parts of the world with my wife Judy is my passion, and bird photography is the cherry on top.

• Jennifer Wilson-Pines has loved birds since age 10 when her parents put up a bird feeder. She has been active with the North Shore Audubon Society since 1997 as Conservation Chair, field trip leader, newsletter editor, and past president.

• Ashley Pichon officially started birding in March of 2022, with the North Shore Audubon Society. She bought her camera around the same time and began learning bird photography alongside traditional birding. Both quickly became an obsession.

• Peggy Maslow upgraded her camera gear so she could photograph shore birds that she needed help identifying. For several years she did shorebird surveys at Jones Beach West End. Peggy loves taking bird photos, especially of unusual or rare birds or when birds are singing or in interesting poses. Peggy is a board member of North Shore Audubon, Chair of the Education committee and a past President. Nikon Coolpix p950.

Established in 1952, the North Shore Audubon Society area comprises most of Northern Nassau County. Meetings and walks are open to the public and all levels of birders are welcome. North Shore Audubon works to further conservation of natural resources and to educate the community. The North Shore Audubon Society is one of seven Audubon Societies on Long Island and also belongs to AudubonNY and The National Audubon Society.

The Photography Club of Long Island, formerly known as the Port Washington Camera Club, was founded in 1975 and hosts free monthly programs at the Port Washington Public Library as a community service from September through June each year.
