The Birdsong Man coming to Cranbrook
John Neville, president of BC Nature and lifelong birder, presents the sounds and images of the raptors of Canada on Monday, September 23rd at 1 p.m. at the Cranbrook Public Library.
John records the sounds of the birds in the wild with great sensitivity and field craft awareness. His major aim is that the production of his art of nature recording will make people more aware of the feathered creatures and their need for a protected habitat. In this Monday’s hour-long presentation, with the kind permission of Robert Bateman, John has linked the images of these fabulous paintings with his authentic sound recordings of raptors. He captures the audience’s attention with his vivid descriptions of the special biological features that allow raptors to be successful birds of prey.
Recently John’s nature recordings have been used by the Canadian Wildlife Service, CBC’s The Nature of Things and in Parks Canada interpretive programs. His work is currently on exhibit in the new Robert Bateman Center in Victoria.
Seating is limited so call 250-426-4063 or drop in at the Cranbrook Public Library at 1212 2nd Street North to sign up for this free program.
