Winter Birding Weekend Announced in Long Lake, NY

Winter Birding Weekend in Long Lake!
Saturday & Sunday, January 28-29, 2017

Enjoy a weekend of birding events in the Central Adirondacks this winter! Events will include field trips, a presentation, and social dinner. Participants will look for winter “irruptive” species such as Common and Hoary Redpolls and Pine Siskins, along with year-round boreal residents such as Black-backed Woodpeckers, Gray Jays, and Boreal Chickadees.

Winter Birding event in Long Lake, NY January 28th - 29th, 2017

Winter Birding event in Long Lake, NY January 28th – 29th, 2017

Joan Collins will lead field trips on both days. The main field trip will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2017 beginning at 8 a.m. There will be an optional field trip on Saturday, January 28, 2017 for those who arrive early. This trip will also begin at 8 a.m. (In the event of inclement weather on Sunday, the Saturday trip will become the main field trip.) The meeting location for both field trips is the Geiger Arena parking area (across from the Long Lake Post Office). Participants can car-pool to reduce the number of cars in our train!

Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m., Joan Collins will present “Winter Bird Visitors of Northern New York” at the Long Lake Town Hall. Each year, avian visitors from the far north move south to spend the winter in our northern New York region. Some of the species, like Bohemian Waxwing and Snow Bunting, can be found every winter. Other species, such as Pine Grosbeak, irregularly “irrupt” into our area only in certain winters, while some species irrupt on a fairly regular schedule, such as the Common Redpoll, which tends to visit every other winter. Why the birds move to our region, and where you can find them, will be discussed. The presentation will feature nineteen species that visit northern New York in winter using photographs, audio, and video.

A social dinner at the Adirondack Hotel will follow the Saturday afternoon presentation. Participants will gather at the Adirondack Hotel after the talk and dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Registration is required to attend the field trips. Call the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department at 518-624-3077 to register. There is a maximum of 25 participants for each field trip. The presentation and dinner at the Adirondack Hotel are open to the public. If you plan to attend dinner at the Adirondack Hotel after the presentation, please call the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department to register by January 25th. It will be an ala carte meal, but reservations requested for head count.

Places to stay: Shamrock Motel and Cottages (http://www.shamrockmotellonglake.com/ ) and the Adirondack Hotel (http://www.adirondackhotel.com/ ). The Long Lake Diner opens for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. Stewarts offers quick breakfast items. On Saturday, participants can pre-order lunch from the ADK Trading Post for pick-up along our birding route. Menus will be sent to participants. Sunday’s lunch plans will be decided as the winter progresses and our birding route is planned for that day.

The Winter Birding Weekend is sponsored by the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department.

Joey Thomas Big Band in Long Lake, NY November 12th

Joey Thomas Big Band in Long Lake, NY November 12th

As a member of Unit Band 146 out of Norfolk, VA, Joey served as an American Ambassador of Good Will performing concerts across Europe and the eastern United States. After his military service, Joey continued performing on the road with many Top 40 bands, one of which performed shows with Dick Clark’s Cavalcade of Stars in the late 60’s. After a decade on the road, Joey settled in New York’s Capital Region satisfying his love of music and maintaining his chops by playing with a number of Top 40 and party bands including The Kings Four and Morgan BLVD.

A part of the New York’s Capital Region professional music scene since 1972, Bob plays the three tier theater organ, piano, and trumpet. For many years he accompanied himself using keyboards, midi pedals, a drum machine and sound system. He is thrilled to be the featured male vocalist with The Joey Thomas Big Band .

Bob’ Father’s introduction to Joey Thomas was through his son George, then a member of The Joey Thomas Big Band trombone section. In 2000, Joey needed a vocalist to fill in for a gig, and thus their musical collaboration began. Bob has performed with The Joey Thomas Big Band throughout New York State in a variety of venues and for special events in New England, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and at Sealand in Florida.

Growing up in a musical family, Bob’s music life began at home. This exposed him to the great singers and songs of earlier generations and pop music of the day while fostering his love of music. He spent many of his early years playing the organ and directing his church choir. Bob’s first professional gig was at the age of 14 at Dante’s Steak House in East Greenbush.

Bob honed his skills working in many Capital Region clubs and has performed at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, Proctor’s Theatre, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the Egg in Albany, as well as the Spa Little Theatre and Saratoga Music Hall. In addition to performing with JTBB, Bob is also the featured singer with the local wedding and party band High Definition. He has also has sung with the Bud Bryer Big Band and the Yankee Doodle Band.

Bob is a graduate of Albany High School and Bryant & Stratton College in Albany, NY.

Under the leadership of Joey Thomas, the members of the Joey Thomas are dedicated to the perpetuation of these American treasures through performances of the classic arrangements used by the original hit makers to new works written specifically for the Band.

Tickets are $15 General Admission at the door, $10 for Veterans and Active Duty Military and children under 18. Cash or check only.
