Upcoming Programs

Bay Area Bird Photographers Meeting
Wednesday September 2 7:30-9PM
Location: Lucy Evans Baylands Interpretive Center on East Embarcadero Rd., Palo Alto

The first meeting this season will feature our annual "BYOP" (bring your own photos) program. It provides an opportunity for our members to show some of their best and most recent work. It is always well received, and it often identifies potential speakers for future programs. All are encouraged to participate.

Our projector will work directly from a USB flash drive or card reader, as long as the images are in JPG format (but not saved as "progressive"). They will be displayed in alphanumeric order of file names. You may bring a laptop if you wish, but using flash drives speeds up the process of transitioning from one presenter to the next. Plan on showing up to 10 images. If the program starts running too long, you could be requested to show fewer.

The Bay Area Bird Photographers Meeting
Wednesday October 7 7:30-9:00 PM
Location: Lucy Evans Baylands Interpretive Center on East Embarcadero Rd., Palo Alto

The October program will be "Birding Central Asia" presented by Mike Danzenbaker and Lee Hung, who write:

"In May, 2013, we participated in a birding tour to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Kazakhstan features vast upland steppe grassland containing a variety of larks and raptors and shorebirds, as well as migrants, and the famous Tien Shan mountains which form the border with China. Uzbekistan features desert, dry scrub and scattered oases which attract a variety of breeding birds, and of course the historied silk road. In June, 2014, we participated in another birding tour, this time to Mongolia, which features the Gobi Desert, the Altai Mountains, and long, glaciated montane valleys containing many raptors and a variety of range-restricted birds. We also visited the western edge of the Siberian taiga, which hosts many birds which have occurred as rarities in Alaska. We'll present a variety of photos illustrating these trips."
