"Songbirds of the Adirondacks" at Adirondack Museum

Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y. — Take a naturalist’s tour of the exquisite bird life — from warblers to waxwings – found throughout the Adirondack Park.

Join Gerard “Gerry” Lemmo at the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, New York on Friday, June 20, 2008 for the popular program, “Songbirds of the Adirondacks,” featuring many of the area’s best-loved feeder birds as well as birds you might not guess live in the wilds of northern New York State.

The slide-illustrated program will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the museum’s Auditorium. The presentation is free and open to the public. The “Songbirds of the Adirondacks” is offered in conjunction with the Fourth Annual Hamilton County Birding Festival sponsored by Hamilton County Tourism, and Audubon New York.

Gerry Lemmo is one of the Northeast’s most prolific wildlife and travel photographers. His images are sought by publishers, advertising agencies, and other clients, and regularly appear in national and international publications. Lemmo has traveled to five of the seven continents in pursuit of adventure and the thrill of capturing beautiful photos of elusive wild creatures, as well as the landscapes and cultures that surround them.

He continues to build his diverse collection of photographs from around the world. Within the photo library, now exceeding 70,000 images, are shots of birds, insects, mammals, crustaceans, mollusks, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and a great variety of plant life and wildflowers.

Lemmo gives nearly one hundred slide-illustrated programs each year throughout northern New York State, and regularly publishes his photographs in calendars, magazines, and books.
