“Earbirding in Humboldt County:
Recording, Editing, and Learning Birdsongs”
by Robert Childs.
Wednesday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Robert believes that many people who spend time outdoors are interested in birds but are stymied by the difficulty of spotting them in the foliage. Learning a few birdsongs for each of our habitats adds a whole new dimension to being in nature! Robert will be playing recordings of some unusual local bird sounds that casual birders might not be familiar with, some sounds made by mammals that are commonly mistaken as bird sounds, and some of his favorite bird recordings from Guatemala and Australia.
The live program will be held at the Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Road, Arcata. It will be simultaneously zoomed. Hot drinks and goodies will be served at 7 p.m. so bring a mug to enjoy shade-grown coffee. Please come fragrance-free.

The Incredible Birds of India
with "Bird Man," Mr. Sai
Mr. Sai guided our RRAS president, Gail Kenny, and her family on an amazing bird excursion during a trip to Southern India this past August.
Also known as ‘‘Bird Man,’’ Mr. Sai is a wildlife researcher, photographer, guide, and conservationist in Tirupati, India where he works as a wildlife consultant to Tirupati Wildlife Management Division and a wildlife biologist at Sri Venkateswara National Park. Mr. Sai has been passionate about wildlife photography since childhood. As a Tirupati native, he always had a dream to photograph birds and animals in Seshachalam forest where there are 215 species of birds. Mr. Sai has photographed 179 of them and 574 bird species in India. He has a MA in Wildlife Sciences and a diploma in Ornithology.
This program, which occurred live on Wednesday, January 18, was recorded.
