Steve Hampton, Michael Perrone, John Sterling, and Manfred Kusch will share stories, pictures, and bird sounds from Nome, Alaska. Often considered too difficult to get to or just a pit stop on the way to islands in the Bering Sea, the Nome area offers astounding wildlife viewing and extraordinary scenery, all easily accessible from Anchorage. Prepare to be on the edge of the beach ice staring at Red Phalaropes and Sabine’s Gulls, mesmerized by the ethereal buzzing of a Bluethroat amidst snowy mountain grandeur, and face to face with a Musk Ox.
The Yolo Audubon monthly meeting will take place at the Davis Senior Center (646 A St, Davis, CA 95616). The program starts at 7:30 p.m., but everyone is invited for refreshments and conversation at 7:00.
