Read on for more details

Our speaker will be the amiable yet authoritative Jon Dunn, who leads field trips to far-flung locations including Alaska, Thailand, and California; presently sits on the California Bird Records Committee; is the primary consultant for the National Geographic Society’s field guide to the Birds of North America; and has co-written two top-notch books on bird ID and distribution with our own Kimball Garrett, as well as his book on Gulls co-authored with Steve Howell. As such, he is extraordinarily qualified to speak on aspects of sparrows and many other North American bird families. Jon will cover all sparrow species routinely encountered in California, as well as most other US sparrow species. Binoculars are always a good idea for slide programs. Cookies and coffee. Meet at Eaton Canyon Nature Center, Pasadena, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
