Westborough Historical Society Zoom program on birding
April 26 @ 7:00 pm
Westborough – A Westborough Historical Society Zoom program on birding will be held Monday, April 26, at 7 p.m.
In these times of COVID, bird-watching in the serenity of nature is a popular pastime. Edward Howe Forbush (1858-1929) lived in Westborough, became the state ornithologist in 1908, and was a founder of the Massachusetts Audubon Society.
The Westborough Library’s case of taxidermied birds is a product of his expertise at age 18. Westborough Historical Society President Kathy Cavaliere will reveal the fascinating career of Edward Forbush.
Continuing that bird-watching legacy, Wheaton Biology Professor Scott Shumway of Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) and local ornithologist Sean Williams, Visiting Assistant Professor at Holy Cross, will describe different habitats and their favorite sites for birdwatching in Westborough. (Co-sponsored by the Westborough Community Land Trust and the Westborough Historical Society.)
