Is that an osprey?
Summer in Western New York is a great time to explore and learn about the ecosystem in which we live. If you are going on a hike, camping trip, or kayaking a waterway, consider taking a field guide book with you! The JCC Campus libraries have a wide array of field guides patrons may check out. Trees, wildflowers, butterflies, mammals, fishes, insects, mushrooms, and grizzly bears—oh my!—are just a few of the topics available. Impress your friends! The next time a companion points at the sky and states out loud “I wonder what kind of bird that is!” in a jiffy you’ll be able to confidently pronounce “That’s an osprey!”
