SMBAS Meeting: Kimball Garrett on "My Favorite
Date: Tuesday, February 5, 2002
Time: 7:30PM - 9:30PM PST (GMT-08:00)
Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society presents Kimball Garrett on
�My Favorite Misidentifications�. �We've all
misidentified birds in the field (in fact, the speaker once
identified a Horned Lizard as a Western Tanager), but we can
also learn from our mistakes. In this talk we'll look at some
frequent and recurring misidentifications and examine where and
how we go wrong. The slide-illustrated lecture is intended to
help improve our birding skills.�
Kimball is the Ornithology Collections Manager at the Natural
History Museum of Los Angeles County, a position he has held
since 1982. A lifelong resident of southern California, he has
been birding actively in the region for 35 years. He co-authored
"Birds of Southern California: Status and Distribution" with Jon
Dunn in 1981, and they also teamed up to produce the Peterson
"Field Guide to Warblers of North America", published in 1997.
He is a member of the California Bird Records Committee,
Past-President of Western Field Ornithologists, and member of
the American Birding Association Checklist Committee.
We meet at the Ken Edwards Center, 1527 4th Street (between
Colorado and Broadway), Santa Monica. Parking is under the
building; metered spaces are free after 6:00 p.m., and there are
numerous free Visitor Parking spaces on the 3rd level. We meet
on the first floor - the room number will be posted. Meetings
begin at 7:30 sharp with a short talk on California Native
Plants for your Garden, a little business, and our main
presentation. Refreshments will be served.
