      Hi Birders

      Please join Los Angeles Audubon's monthly meeting on Wednesday, March
      12, 2008. Meet at 7:30pm at the Community Center in Plummer Park,
      Room 6, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd (at Martel between La Brea & Fairfax),
      West Hollywood, CA. The nature store is open before and after the
      meeting for your shopping pleasure!

      INLAND ISLANDS OF WOODPECKERS, with Steve Shunk

      From the western Transverse Ranges north of Santa Barbara to the
      Laguna Mountains
      west of Anza Borrego, nine species of woodpeckers hold year-round
      territories in largely
      complimentary habitats. Winter brings an influx of flickers and
      sapsuckers to the region,
      when some of the resident species wander a bit. Some of Southern
      California's local
      woodpecker populations have developed uniquely specialized lifestyles
      suited to their
      preferred islands of habitat, and at least one endemic subspecies
      inhabits the region's
      pine forests.

      Join Oregon naturalist and woodpecker specialist Steve Shunk as he
      interprets the
      lives and times of our local woodpeckers. For the last 10 years,
      Steve has studied
      woodpeckers on the east slope of Oregon's Cascade Mountains, and he
      is nearing
      completion of the Peterson Reference Guide to Woodpeckers of North
      America. Steve
      will discuss natural history, adaptation, and hybridization among our
      resident and
      migratory woodpecker species, as well as potential identification
      challenges.

      I hope you will attend Steve's great talk to learn about these
      interesting birds. I always find it a fun challenge identifying
      species of wintering sapsuckers that I'm sure Steve will fully discuss.

      See you this night!
