Comox Valley Nature will host a one-hour lecture by John Neville on Avian Carpenters: Canada’s Woodpeckers.

Neville, past-president of BCNature, is well known for his CD recordings of bird songs.

He has produced 17 regional sound guides to bird identification and an e-book, Travelling the Dempster. He just released the four-CD set Bird Songs of Canada, Chants D’Oiseax du Canada. He regularly presents at birding festivals and is the current recipient of the BC Nature Elton Anderson Award for outstanding achievement in public conservation.

Neville records in the wild with great sensitivity and field craft awareness. His major aim is that the production of his art of nature recording will make people more aware of the feathered creatures and their need for a protected habitat.

The presentation,  Avian Carpenters: Canada’s Woodpeckers, will take place at the Florence Filberg Seniors Centre at 7 p.m. on March 15.

Anyone interested in this lecture or participating in CVNS activities can also contact us at comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca, or  by contacting or Loys Maingon (CVN president) at 250-331-0143.
