WATCHING WARBLERS Birders' Social
Can you imagine watching all of North America's eastern warblers on February 5th? You can do just that.
Lower Columbia Basin Audubon (LCBAS) will be holding a birders' social which includes a bird walk in the morning, a break for lunch, the DVD version of WATCHING WARBLERS at the Battelle Auditorium, followed by refreshments and visiting time.
The birdwalk will be on Bateman Island starting at 8 am. If the group is huge we may venture into the Yakima Delta or other surrounding areas. Bateman Island is known for having just about anything show up. Come see what you can find. Directions are in the WA Bird Finding Guide or request them by return email.
The feature, WATCHING WARBLERS, is an hour of up-close looks at singing male eastern warblers and more. You may have seen the video, but the DVD version has better sound and picture quality. Battelle Auditorium is located at 903 Battelle Blvd off George Washington Way in the northern part of Richland. A $5.00 donation will be requested at the door. There is seating for 300 which will be available on a first come, first served basis. The showing will start at 1 pm.
LCBAS is working with the award winning filmmakers Judy Fieth and Michael Male to make this event possible. There will be DVD's available for purchase for $39.95. Proceeds from the sale of the DVDs will be returned to Judy & Michael to support the making of Watching WESTERN Warblers.
If you are interested in attending or need more information, please reply to this email or cmreep at charter.net and include your phone number. Let us know if you or your group may attend and if you would like a DVD reserved. Please gather your birding friends and come meet other birders. Spread the word.
