Learn About Bluebirds With The Chenango Bird Club
Published: May 8th, 2023

SHERBURNE — The Chenango Bird Club will be meeting Wednesday, May 10 at the Rogers Environmental Education Center in Sherburne. A short business meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. followed by the program “Bluebirds – and More” by John Rogers.

This inspiring and informative PowerPoint presentation includes the life history of the Eastern Bluebird, other birds that nest in bluebird boxes, nest box management, and more. The focus of this program definitely is on bluebirds, but John also shares his love for the natural world in the hope the audience will take away some broader and deeper messages about nature.

John has maintained a trail of bluebird nest boxes in central New York north of Syracuse for over four decades. He has done bluebird slide programs and workshops for hundreds of organizations in 12 states and two Canadian provinces. John was a co-founder of the New York State Bluebird Society in 1982. In 2010, he was a recipient of the Hero of Conservation Award from the Syracuse Post Standard.
