Virtual Fall Lecture Series - Exploring the Birds of Ontario II

Join David T. Chapman from the safety and comfort of your own home. In part one of this series, we covered the beautiful backyard birds along with birds of prey. In this program you will see some different photos and videos of these birds again, along with additions like warblers, winter finches and herons. We will also be looking at the nesting process of owls and a particular, popular songbird that generally everyone has had the pleasure to enjoy in their own yard. This show will have humour, bloopers and facts along with stunning imagery that audiences of any age will enjoy.   

David T. Chapman is self-taught in both storm chasing and the art of photography. He has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs and video of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as albino robins, ice crystal formations and frozen water droplets. He has found multi-petalled Ontario Trilliums, the highest of which had 33 petals and was found in Grey County, Ontario. David is also a professional speaker who enjoys entertaining and educating. His main areas of expertise are Weather/Aurora Borealis, Local Interests and Scenery of Ontario, Birds and Wildlife. David's work has been featured on many networks including The Weather Network, Global, CTV, City TV, CBC Toronto and others. After over 15 years of studying all aspects of weather, David is now involved in researching past tornadic events across our province to fine tune his thunderstorm forecasting.
