General Membership Meeting

Thursday, April 23. GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING. 7:00 p.m.

Everyone welcome. Encino Community Center, 4935 Balboa Blvd., Encino. Located between Moorpark and Ventura Blvd., on the west side of Balboa, just south of the Presbyterian Church. Come early for social hour.

Our speaker, Larry Arbanas will talk about birds from Alaska to Florida.

Larry Arbanas, the bird filmmaker, has been out in the field for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology again and this time he asks us to pull out our trusty rulers and a United States of America map. What is the longest straight line that can be drawn from any one point to another in the continental U.S.? That’s right, Florida to Alaska. Recent filming expeditions to both those locations yielded some great opportunities to capture footage of birds. What do Limpkins and Northern Wheatears have in common other than wings, bills, feathers and all that other well-known bird stuff? If you know, Larry would love to hear what you’ve got to say about that. He hasn’t a clue! But he would love to share images of those birds with us, regardless, and many other FL and AK specialties such as Bristle-thighed Curlew, Tri-colored Heron, Bluethroat and Wood Stork. There will even be some Peregrine Falcons for you non-vegetarians. And, of course, a moose will have to work its way into the lineup. (Not a bird, newbies!) Larry looks forward to visiting with us again this year.
