Insects for Birders with Bryan Pfeiffer

Join me on April 2 for inspiration and practical advice on turning your binoculars toward butterflies, dragonflies, fireflies, tiger beetles and other glittering insects, which E. O. Wilson calls the “little things that run the world.”

Free to all, this presentation is brought to you by the famed Essex County (MA) Ornithological Club (ECOC) and the very-cool Peabody Essex Museum (PEM), with support from The Echo Charitable Foundation. It all begins on Friday, April 2 at 7:30PM with a 15-minute ECOC meeting. Then I’ll bring you insects — along with wonder and joy. Lots of wonder and joy.

    Hi Bryan,

    Fortunately, I was able to see your presentation through the link sent me by PEM, since here in Costa Rica we don’t have daylight savings time, and thus when I opened my computer for your talk it was almost over. I’ve been in Costa Rica sitting out the pandemic and have wonderful moths and insects coming both into my house, to my porch light, and also seen and photographed in the field. While my Swift Guide to the Butterflies of Mexico and Central America by Glassberg is great for butterflies, I can’t seem to find any good sources for moths here in particular, and insects in general. Can you clue me in to any websites or other sources that might be helpful in narrowing moths down to families at least, and/or identifying some of the more commonly found insects. Thank you.

    PS I will be here another month, but generally go back several times a year since I now own a house here
    PPS I also try to study and take photos of insects in Massachusetts where my home is
