Queens County Bird Club: Machu Picchu

In July 2016, QCBC member Ian Resnick and former president Ian Resnick birded Machu Picchu, other highland areas in the vicinity, as well as two areas not far from Lima. The first day was a private trip north of Lima, and the rest was a group tour of the highlands starting from Cusco. Approximately 185 species of birds were seen or heard among some of the most amazing scenery in the Andes. The weather for this trip was quite good, in fact too dry in some spots, and very cold at the highest altitudes (over 13,000 feet!). Ian will be showing his photos from the trip and discussing the various birds seen and sites visited.

When: Wednesday, January 17, 8 PM

Where: Alley Pond Environmental Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd., Douglaston, NY 11362

Admission: FREE. Light refreshments served.

More Than A Dream: A Celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. with Milton Suggs

While the importance of Dr. King’s life and work is recognized around the world, he is mostly recognized for his “I Have A Dream” speech given at the 1963 March on Washington. This program gives a multi-dimensional look at Dr. King’s ministry by pairing recorded excerpts of his many other speeches and sermons with arrangements of protest songs and original music by Milton Suggs based on his words.

Milton Suggs has a voice that commands attention. Whether it’s on record or in concert, this jazz vocalist takes inspiration from such music legends as diverse as Marvin Gaye, Eddie Jefferson and Joe Williams.

When: Wednesday, January 17, 6 pm to 7:30 pm

Where:  Queens Library, 89-11 Merrick Boulevard, Jamaica, NY 11432

Admission: FREE. Registration is not required.

This program will take place in the Main Lobby of the Central Library.
