Discover One Bird – Save a Thousand
by Doug Wechsler
In 1997, an odd bird was discovered in the cloud forest of the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. Scientists
rushed to learn more about the bird and found themselves in a race to save this newly described
antpitta species. Cascading events led to the establishment of a chain of bird reserves and conservation
actions across the globe. Doug Wechsler will recount this fascinating history and will talk about bird
conservation in Ecuador today. His beautiful images focus on the biodiversity of the Ecuador reserves
run by the Jocotoco Conservation Foundation. Be sure and put this date on you "must do" list.

The meeting starts with a social 1/2 hour at 7 pm followed by the regular meeting at 7:30 pm.
Tuesday Morning Bird Walks 
on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays 
are happening again for the Spring beginning in SEPTEMBER.   

There may be new impromptu bird walks/field trips added see the Flash Bird Walks page for more info.
