      Hi Birders

      You are cordially invited to attend the general meeting for Los
      Angeles Audubon Society, 7:30pm, Wednesday October 13, 2010 in
      Plummer Park, 7335 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046,
      room 1 in the West Hollywood Community Hall. Parking is available on
      the Santa Monica Blvd. entrance side to the south and the lot behind
      LAAS on Fountain Ave. to the north. There is abundant on-street
      parking after 7:00pm on the south side of Santa Monica Blvd., across
      the street from Plummer Park and the West Hollywood Community Center.

      During January and February, many reports of Swainson's Hawk
      sightings are reported to the local listservs. in Anza Borrego,
      hundreds if not thousands, these hawks can be seen moving through
      this time of the year. Come and listen to this great talk and learn
      about these long-distance traveler's migration path.

      Scott Thomas and Pete Bloom presents "The Swainson's Hawk Migration
      in southern California"

      Every spring, reports of kettles of Swainson's Hawks flying through
      the Los Angeles basin are posted on the local bird reports. This a
      great opportunity to listen to Scott Thomas and Pete Bloom, both
      biologists who band and study raptors, will focus their discussion on
      Swainson's Hawk travels through southern California on their way to
      and from breeding grounds, including the closest area, the Antelope
      Valley. Scott will touch on the migration, discuss his hopes to use
      satellite telemetry as part of the studies at Borrego Springs, and
      touch on the other California breeding areas, including the central
      valley and the great basin. Scott and Pete will talk a bit about this
      hawk's entire range from North America to South America- a term Scott
      likes to use - Life Range.

      November 10, 2010 meeting will be Bob Barnes: "Kern River Valley/
      Southern Sierra Nevada Birds and Birding"

      We hope to see you this night!

      Happy Birding!
