Subject: FW: The Birds of Midway Atoll, 1/20/2000, 7PM at CUH

FYI, birdlovers.

The Birds of Midway Atoll
A slide presentation by Ivan Summers

Thursday, January 20th, 7PM
The UW Center for Urban Horticulture
3501 NE 45th Street, Seattle
(from NE 45th St, turn south on Mary Gates Memorial Way to NE 41st St)

These three small islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean are home
to 2 million seabirds including Laysan Albatross, Black-footed
Albatross, White "Fairy" Terns, Red-billed Tropicbirds,
Bristle-thighed Curlews, noddys, petrels, shearwaters, boobies, and
frigatebirds to name a few. The sight and sound of birds are always
present and often overwhelming. Site of a US Naval Air Station from
1940 to 1988 and focus of probably the most important naval battle of
WWII, Midway Atoll is now a National Wildlife Refuge. Open to the
public on a limited basis; the infrastructure of war has been
converted to benefit wildlife and the travelers who come to visit.
Join Ivan as he leads us through these incredible islands, explores
their natural beauty and reflects on their important historical past.

Doors open at 6:30 PM. Refreshments. Complimentary.
