      Mendocino Coast Audubon presents Birds of Ecuador
      Most birders are aware that bird diversity varies according to latitude. The
      arctic region has few resident birds, the temperate zone has more, and the
      tropical belt has the most. Half-way between the United States and the
      equator is tiny Costa Rica, which has over 850 species -- more species than
      in the entire United States. Ecuador, sitting right on the equator, is the
      culmination of this trend: With over 1500 species of birds, Ecuador offers
      more bird diversity in less space than any other country in the world.

      Ecuador's small size (equal to the U.S. state of Colorado) and
      well-developed transportation system means that this diversity can be easily
      accessed and experienced even by those with limited time and money. In
      June of 2007, Roger Foote and his wife Holly Brackman traveled to this South
      American country with it's vast jungles, huge rivers, cloud forests and
      Andean peaks. A Ukiah resident, Roger will bring his adventure to the
      coast in January. The slideshow will take place at 7 pm on Monday, January
      19, 2009 at the College of the Redwoods, Mendocino Coast Campus. This
      program is free to the public, but we welcome donations to help with the
      cost of presenting monthly programs.

      CR Coast Campus is located at 1211 Del Mar Drive in Fort Bragg. To join
      Mendocino Coast Audubon and receive our newsletter, send $15.00 to MCAS
      P.O. Box 2297, Fort Bragg, CA 95437.

        History and Wildlife

        Of Our Three Most Remote

        National Wildlife Refuges



        Doug Forsell was manager of the National Wildlife Refuges at How-land, Baker
        and Jarvis Islands for four years in the 1980s. These tiny Central Pacific
        Ocean islands are United States territories and visited only by the
        educators and scientists who manage the Pacific Remote Is-lands Marine
        National Monument. Mr. Forsell's studies at Humboldt State University
        launched a 36-year career at USFWS. He is a nationally-recognized authority
        on seabirds that nest on the island refuges-a population of more than a
        million seabirds that have survived the Pacific guano wars of the 1800s,
        World War II military activities, and biological and chemical warfare
        testing in the 1960s.
