      Mendocino Audubon Presents-The Veracruz River of Raptors

      A river is an abundant stream or flow, and a raptor is a bird of prey. And
      yes, it is a River of Raptors that passes overhead each fall in Mexico. The
      central Veracruz area is host to one of the largest and most important
      migration flyways in the world, and Pronatura Veracruz, one of the branches
      of Pronatura, a Mexican NGO that promote environmental conservation and
      preservation of biodiversity, dedicates a significant part of its efforts to
      the monitoring of this special migration site. This raptor flyway is known
      as the largest in the world, with over 4 million raptors belonging to 25
      different species passing through each fall. Days of 50,000 are not rare,
      and 700,000 a day can also occur!

      Join Mendocino Coast Audbon members as they hear the stories and see the
      pictures of this remarkable event. The speaker, Norma Ferriz was the
      executive director of Pronatura Veracruz from 2002 to August 2007. Norma is
      a biologist with a Master's in non profit organizations management and a
      very enthusiastic bird watcher. This program is open to the public and
      children are welcomed. The date is Monday February 16, 2009, the location
      is College of the Redwoods, Room 300 and the meeting begins at 7 pm. For
      further information see <blocked::http://www.mendocinocoastaudubon.org/>

      Coast Audubon for $15.00 per year. Send a check to MCAS P.O. Box 2297, Fort

        Birds and Nature of the Southern Cone



        The Southern Cone? Is that an Ice Cream place in Georgia? Nope, it is the
        triangle-shaped southern section of South America. The cone includes Chile,
        Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and the southern bits of Bolivia and Brazil.
        What makes it special is that there are so many habitats and neat areas
        here, the Pampas, Patagonia, the Matorral, the Humboldt Current, Iguazu
        Falls, the Yungas, the Chaco - so many spots that are truly and uniquely
        South American. It is the land of Rheas, penguins, horneros, seriemas, as
        well as Southern Right Whales, Marine Otters, Viscachas and Vicuñas. A part
        of the world blessed with some enigmatic, unusual, beautiful and often
        rather unique creatures. But what absolutely is the icing on the cake is
        that the southern cone includes some of the most memorable and scenic parts
        of the Americas. This includes snow-capped volcanoes, huge granitic spikes,
        the big sky country of the Pampas and Patagonia and coastlines that are
        perhaps only rivaled by California for their beauty. Come enjoy an evening
        exploring a gorgeous part of the world and its equally fantastic bird and
        wildlife through the eyes of Alvaro Jaramillo, a birder-biologist who has an
        unbridled passion for this part of the world. The April 11, 2011 7 PM
        meeting will be held at the Gualala Arts Center. Carpooling is encouraged.
        Audubon meetings are open to everyone at no charge, however, donations to
        offset the cost of presenting programs is encouraged. For further
        information, go to http://www.mendocinocoastaudubon.org/ or write to
