      Birds and Wildlife of Cameroon

      Matthew Matthiessen's Birds of Borneo and and Birds and Wildlife of
      Uganda stunned overflow audiences for two years in a row with their
      beautiful photography and snappy narration. Last September, to no one's
      surprise but his own, Matthew managed to do it again with Birds and
      Wildlife of Cameroon. Matthew is graciously presenting that show again
      as a benefit for Peregrine Audubon Society on Friday, February 23, 7
      p.m. at the Ukiah Civic Center. The suggested donation is $7, with
      children under 12 admitted free of charge. No one will be turned away.
      Please arrive early as this program is likely to sell out. (Directions

      Cameroon is a small country on the inside curve of West Africa,
      extending from the ocean in the southwest to the edge of the Sahara
      Desert in the north. With three distinct climates and ecosystems, it is
      an excellent place to see rare birds and other wildlife. In Birds and
      Wildlife of Cameroon we will be treated to views of the blue Abyssinian
      Roller with its long tail; the green and blue White-throated Bee-eater;
      and the unique Standard-winged Night-Jar with long feathers that stream
      back from its wings. We will glimpse a raptor known as a �Secretary
      Bird� (so named because of feathers that stick up from its head like
      pencils), and we�ll accompany Matthew on an arduous hike as he searches
      for the rare Gray-necked Picathartes. Matthew also saw and photographed
      giraffes, roan (a kind of antelope), chameleons, and butterflies.

      One hears the term "world class" applied to Matthew Matthiessen's
      presentations more and more frequently. Those of us who live in
      Mendocino County are lucky to benefit from Matthew�s travels and
      photography skills, and his desire to share them with us. Don't miss
      another virtuoso performance by one of Mendocino's greatest treasures!

      From Hwy 101 take Perkins Street west to State Street (second light).
      Go left on State. After three blocks turn right on Seminary Ave. Take
      Seminary to the Civic Center.
