ADDISON, Vt. –Vermont wildlife photographer Brian Machanic will present ‘The Art in Birding’ at the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area headquarters in Addison, Vermont on Tuesday, June 5, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The presentation will be followed by a one-hour photography bird walk at the Dead Creek WMA.

Machanic is a native Vermonter who has had a passion for wildlife since childhood and has been an avid naturalist and photographer his whole life.  He began selling scenic and wildlife images 30 years ago at his Nature’s Eye Studio in Charlotte and has published photos and stories in regional and national magazines. Machanic recently published his first book, entitled This Book Is for The Birds.

“I invite people to come spend an enjoyable evening exploring many of the birds of Vermont’s renowned Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area,” said Machanic.  “During my presentation, viewers will get an up-close look at the beauty and unique attributes of various species through an exploration of a large portfolio of avian images – no binoculars or spotting scopes required!”

Following Machanic’s presentation, participants will have an opportunity to take a one-hour field walk on the grounds of the WMA. Tom Rogers of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will lead the field walk and help participants identify and photograph some of the amazing birds that call Dead Creek home. 

The event is limited to the first 25 participants. To register, contact Amy Alfieri at amy.alfieri@vermont.gov or 802-759-2398.
