Yakkers and Auduboners,
The program for this month's Yakima Valley Audubon Society meeting will
feature the photographs of George Vlahakis. A big screen opportunity to view the
birds of Point Pelee National Park of Ontario, Canada. Point Pelee is the
southernmost point in Canada as it juts south in Lake Erie. It is a
well-known stopping point for birds during spring migration.
Andy has promised that all of "MacArthur's Warblers" are included in the
program. Andy also promised to clue us in on just which warblers are in that
group. My first guess was that it was a family of warblers indigenous to the
Philippine Islands that were named after General Douglas MacArthur. Realizing
that such warblers would be unlikely to end up in the Great Lakes area, I've
hedged my bet to those warblers vowing , " I shall return!" as they migrate
south from Point Pelee each fall.
As always, the public is welcome at Audubon chapter meetings. This month's
meeting is Thursday, Sep 28, at the Yakima Area Arboretum's Jewett Building
at 7:00 pm.
Hope to see you there,
