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.
