WINTER CROW ROOST: AN AMAZING AVIAN SPECTACLE
It’s hard to believe that two months have passed already since the 2021 Northeast Natural History Conference. The NENHC2021 was a fun, vibrant, and engaging meeting with more than 580 participants – if you were able to participate, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Everyone—researchers, field biologists, natural resource managers, faculty members and their students, and naturalists—who shares the vision of developing an expanded true regional forum for sharing information on all aspects of the natural history sciences of the northeastern United States and eastern Canada were encouraged to participate in NENHC 2021.
As part of the advance planning process, the Steering Committee requested submissions of short natural history videos from conference attendees – both minimally edited footage and highly produced pieces – to be showcased on Saturday night near the end of the conference.
Each NENHC attendee had a chance to rate the submissions to the NENHC 2021 Natural History Video Festival. They were provided access to an online a ballot. Keith Goldfarb, from the steering committee compiled all the results from the ballots submitted by 3pm on Sunday to determine the Audience Choice award winners for both the Documentaries category and the Observational Footage category. Winners were announced at the conference Closing Ceremony on Sunday. In the Observational Footage Category, the Winter Crow Roost submission was awarded first place by the panel of judges, from among many outstanding entries.
