Madagascar is a must-see place for any birder or naturalist. Having been isolated for over 80 million years, it is a unique biogeographic region referred to by some as the eighth continent. All of its native land mammals are indigenous including over 70 species of lemurs, a primate group largely confined to Madagascar. Of the more than 250 species of birds found there, over half are endemic, including six families of birds found only there and on some small nearby islands. Yolo Audubon Society members Sid England, Randy Beaton and Ann Brice visited Madagascar in 2017. Please join them to learn about this fascinating place and experience the magic of the island.
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.
