May Monthly Membership Meeting: Thursday, May 16th at 7:00 pm. Olin Hall Room 129, Whitman College
Presentation by Sue and Jim Parrish
Join us on a photo presentation on the birds of the Hawaiian Islands. We’ll visit the Big Island of Hawaii, as well as Maui and Kauai, along the way discovering birds that live from the coastlines to the slopes of Mauna Kea at 7,000 ft. As the habitat changes from black sand beaches and recent lava flows to native forests, so do the birds. We’ll share the interesting non natives, as well as the endemic and endangered honey creepers found no where else on earth. And of course, a few shots of lava flows, beaches, turtles, and whales.
The Parrish’s have lived in the WW area since 1983. Jim is a retired dentist and Sue is a retired science educator. Both have become avid birders since taking Mike Denny’s birding class in 2008.
