Sparrows with Dr. Wayne Meyer. 

Dr. Wayne Meyer will talk about the sparrows visiting Hagerman NWR for the winter.  Participants will then be invited to joing him for a bird walk at Goode/Hallers Haven to observe them.

Dr. Wayne Meyer is an Associate Professor of the Biology department at Austin College, where he has been teaching for 29 years. He started birding at 13 in Connecticut. In 1993 he finally achieved his life’s dream of being paid to look at birds when he joined the faculty of Austin College. He has birded both coasts of the U.S. extensively and now has spent a quarter-century birding in Texas and Oklahoma. The proximity of Austin College to Hagerman NWR has made research on prairie birds easy and convenient and he has been studying song learning and singing in Painted Buntings for over a decade. Meyer is also a sought-after speaker for Master Naturalist groups and a frequent speaker at the Friends of Hagerman NWR Second Saturday programs.
