      Todd Battey Presents Images of Raptors and Other Wildlife of the
      Antelope Valley

      Many birders travel to the Antelope Valley of northern Los Angeles
      County to enjoy the birds that inhabit this part of the Mojave
      Desert, and winter is the time to find many of the area�s specialty
      species. Large numbers of raptors occur during the colder months,
      including Ferruginous Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, Prairie Falcon, Merlin,
      Long-eared Owl, and many other species. Todd Battey has been
      digiscoping the local birds for several years and has accumulated a
      collection of raptor images that documents the variability of many of
      the common species. Additional photographs by others will be
      included to provide a more complete presentation of the raptors that
      can be found in the Antelope Valley. Here�s a chance to bone up on
      the identification of the various color morphs of AV�s raptors while
      there is still time to get out and see them. Todd will also present
      additional images of other birds (non-raptors) and wildlife of the
      area, including the many reptiles that emerge about the time the
      raptors thin out.

      Todd has lived in the Antelope Valley for 13 years where he works as
      a professional geologist cleaning up environmental contamination at
      Edwards Air Force Base. He has geology Bachalor�s and Master�s
      degrees from UC Santa Barbara and USC, respectively. His hobbies
      include observing and photographing wildlife, especially birds and
      herps. He has been photographing wildlife in the area since he
      acquired his digiscope equipment about two years ago. The imagery he
      will present at the meeting includes many of the vertebrate species
      that can be found in Antelope Valley with an emphasis on the area�s
      raptors.

      The nature store will be open before and after the meeting.

      Join me and other fellow birders for Todd's talk.

      Happy Birding!
