FEBRUARY PROGRAM MEETING

Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 7 PM

"Birds in Art, Science and History"

Presented by Harry Fuller

Join Harry Fuller for an exploration of some of the landmarks in bird illustration and
the discovery of North America's birds.  Alexander Wilson and John James
Audubon were both explorers and important artists.  A major landmark field guide
was written by Florence Merriam Bailey, two decades before Peterson's first guide.  
Some other names that you may see in field guides belong to men and women who
were crucial to advancements in the early stages of the science of ornithology:  
John Cassin, Thomas Mayo Brewer, Anna de Belle Massena , Thomas Nuttall, John
Kirk Townsend and Georg Wilhelm Steller.

Harry Fuller is the author of
Freeway Birding: San Francisco to Seattle and Great
Gray Owls of California, Oregon and Washington
.  He leads field trips for Klamath
Bird Observatory, Golden Gate Audubon Society and Partnership for International
Birding.  While living in Ashland, he helped start the Ashland Christmas Bird Count
and the Mountain Bird Festival.  He currently lives in McMinnville, OR.
