Come one, come all! Join us for our special Bird-A-Thon promotion night. We are pleased to have David Drummond, Merlin Falcon Foundation President and Wildlife Biologist, join us with a special program on songbirds.
David’s presentation will include birdsongs, an overview of bird migration, field ID, and habitat associations of songbird families including: Flycatchers, Vireos, Thrushes, Warblers, Swifts and Swallow families. He concludes with how we can help these "jewels of the bird world" to survive on their energetic island hopping path as they migrate north in the spring. David will also bring his Merlin Falcon Foundation education exhibit so that people are aware that songbirds in riparian/upland habitats are part of Merlin ecology too.
David has been a professional biologist, naturalist and educator in Washington State since 1974. He also leads bird and wildlife tours on land and cruise ships around the world. It is his delight to share with people and help catalyze their nature awareness!
