Birds of the New England Swamp

Birds of the New England Swamp. Wildlife photographer Peter Christoph presents a narrated  slideshow, sharing both his award-winning images and his photographic secrets as he brings  you inside a typical New England swamp. Peter provides an intimate look into the many  varieties of birds that inhabit our swamps, including ospreys and herons, shorebirds,  woodpeckers, and other cavity dwellers. Sloshing and crawling through the swamp so you  don’t have to, Peter captures the bird’s many activities including building the nest, feeding their  young, and catching their prey. You’ll almost want to bring your own wading boots and bug  spray for protection as you sit down to watch this captivating presentation. 

Peter Christoph is a well-known wildlife advocate, naturalist and award-winning  conservation photographer based in Lancaster, MA. He has a great respect for wildlife  and through his presentations seeks to raise awareness of the need to conserve bird  habitat. Peter has presented at photography groups nationally and locally, including  the Photographic Society of America (PSA), New England Camera Club Council (NECCC,)  and several camera clubs throughout New England. He is a regular speaker for the  Appalachian Mountain Club, Mass Audubon and the National Wildlife Refuge System, as well  as numerous birding clubs and dozens of libraries. Peter is Vice Chair of the Massachusetts  Camera Naturalists, and is past president of the Camera Club of Central New England.  He has been the recipient of many prestigious national and international awards and medals  recognizing his photographic talent. Peter is also responsible for publishing three bird  photography books, including his latest “The Art of Bird Photography.”

This presentation is made possible by a grant from the Westfield Cultural Council
