Birds in the neighborhood


October 23, 2013

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — There will be a book signing with John Haas, author of the newly revised “Birding Guide to Sullivan County, NY” (third edition, 2013) on Saturday, October 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Morgan Outdoors. There will also be displays and a colorful take-home map about one of the region’s top birding area—the Basha Kill wetland, compliments of the Basha Kill Area Association. You’ll learn about their many free programs and walks throughout the year too.

John Haas has been an avid birder for 21 years. His “Birding Guide to Sullivan County, NY” is a fully revised field guide on where and when to find birds in Sullivan County with special focus on the Basha Kill. A new set of photos reflects everything from common species to some of the extreme rarities that have found their way to the area. New birding sites have been added and there is an updated checklist of birds that is very handy. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go directly to the Basha Kill Area Association.
