SDFO meeting on Tuesday, March 19th

Please come join us for the next San Diego Field Ornithologist meeting!


When: Tuesday, March 19, at 6:00 p.m.
Where: In the Hoffman Room of the San Diego Foundation Building, 2508 Historic Decatur Rd. Go south on Rosecrans St. in the Midway area of town, turn left on Roosevelt Rd. into Liberty Station and proceed a couple of blocks to Decatur. Parking is available on the street or in the adjacent parking lots.


Program: We will have two speakers for March. First up will be Dave Povey who will be presenting the list of top birds of San Diego for 2018 as voted by our membership. He will also be discussing species heading up in numbers and those who appear to be heading down in numbers. Dave has been a regular on the local birding scene for years. He has participated on the annual Christmas counts for over 40 years and recently has been organizing the pelagic trips.

Our second speaker will be Nancy Christensen, presenting “Antarctica!” Nancy will present slides of her recent trip to the white continent. Nancy and her husband Russ traveled to Antarctica with Linblad/National Geographic in January 2019. They visited multiple locations along the Antarctic peninsula and in the Weddell Sea. Several locations had never been visited by NatGeo, including the recently discovered Adélie Penguin colony in the Danger Islands, so it really was an exploration expedition. This was truly a trip of a lifetime for them.

And if you haven't paid your 2019 dues, this meeting will be the perfect time. Single memberships are still going for the low price of $25 and family for a mere $35. For additional details for mailing your dues, please follow this link:  SDFO membership instructions.
