      Paul Lehman will be speaking on “Weather and Bird Migration” at 9:00
      a.m. Saturday morning, March 21st, in Irvine. His program will be held
      at the new Education Center in the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary. (This
      is close to Audubon House.) We hope you can join us!

      Birders need to know where the best places are to look for migratory
      birds and when particular species are most likely to occur; they also
      need to have a basic understanding of weather and how it impacts
      migration. Predicting where and when migratory birds are going to show
      up is one of Paul Lehman's specialties. He will begin with a basic
      weather primer and then cover the influences various weather conditions
      have on bird migration.

      Understanding and closely following the weather is a crucial component
      of successful birding. Heading out into the field without first checking
      a weather forecast, particularly during spring and fall migration, may
      hinder their success as much as forgetting their field guide or spotting
      scope. Throughout North America, weather plays a crucial role in the
      timing and volume of migration, and in the occurrence of vagrant species.

      Advance reservations are advisable but not mandatory; seating is
      limited. The charge for this program is $35 per person. For reservations
      and directions, contact Nancy Kenyon at <nancykenyon@...> .
