January 10th - Great Horned Owl
Did you know that Broome County's Great Horned Owls begin courtship "hooting" in November/December and nesting in January? Kick off the 2024 "Lunch With Tom" season with a focus on our largest resident owl species.
February 14th - Eastern Coyote
What do you get when you mix Western Coyotes, wolves, domestic dogs, and a very interesting timeline? You get the Eastern Coyote, a sum that is definitely greater and more interesting than its parts. We will examine this beautiful but often maligned canid.
March 13th - Peregrine Falcon
You may be aware that the Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal on earth, but did you know these falcons have been nesting in downtown Binghamton for decades? Our March program will delve into the amazing abilities and adaptations of this spectacular bird of prey.
April 10th - Eastern Cottontail Rabbit
The cottontail rabbit may appear frail and diminutive, but don't let that fool you. We will explore the adaptations and behavioral traits that have helped to make this a most formidable and successful species.
This program is for adults only. Registration is required. Admission is free.
Free of Charge
