      Hi Birders

      You are cordially invited to attend Los Angeles Audubon's monthly
      meeting, 7:30pm, Wednesday March 10, 2010 in Plummer Park, 7335 Santa
      Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046, room 1 in the Community Hall.
      Refreshments will be served at the bookstore after the presentation.

      Ed Pandolfino presents: Changes in the Winter Distribution of Rough-
      legged Hawks in North America

      A cold winter day in most any open country habitat of northern
      California can be brightened by finding a Rough-legged Hawk. These
      striking arctic-breeding raptors are always a treat to see. Like many
      of you, several years ago Ed noted that Rough-legged Hawks seemed to
      be decreasing in California. Little did he know that trying to answer
      the seemingly simple question, �Are Rough-legged Hawks really on the
      decline here?�, would lead to years of intense data-mining and some
      surprising conclusions. Ed will present the results of his work with
      Kim Suedkamp Wells that documents large scale changes in the winter
      distribution of this hawk in North America over the past few decades.
      Ed will also discuss some factors that may explain this shift.

      Spaces are still available for weekend trips to the southern Sierra
      owling extravaganza, east Mojave Desert migrant search, viewing sage
      grouse in Owens Valley, and more. Our trips are open to everyone from
      beginners to advanced birders.

      Next month's meeting is Gregg Rubin's very informative discussion on
      "Bringing Native Ecology into the Habitat Garden: Attracting
      Wildlife, not Fire". It's especially informative after Southern
      California's devastating forest fires the past few years.

      See you Wednesday!
