At our next meeting of Nature PEI, join local birders Rosemary Curley and Dan McAskill as they take us on a photo journey of their birding adventure with other naturalist friends in southeastern Arizona in 2016. “It was a very different birding experience” emphasizes Rosemary ” seeing mainly new birds, including some very exciting rarities”. “The variation in landscape was phenomenal” notes Dan “from desert, lakes and wetlands, to grasslands and canyon walls”. We were sucking air at 6600 feet as we sought the spotted owl”. The group sighted about 120 species of birds, a “pretty impressive list including the state bird” notes Rosemary. The evening promises to be full of photos of the spectacular landscape, exotic finds, maybe a few tall tales, and no mountains to climb.
Rosemary Curley is a longtime member of Nature PEI who enjoys birding and botanizing.
Dan McAskill is a birder and naturalist who naturally keeps track of birds wherever he is.
All are welcome to join us Tuesday June 6, 7:30 pm at Beaconsfield, the Carriage House in Charlottetown where Dan and Rosemary will share highlights of their trip.
