“The Amazing in the Familiar: Surprising Facts about Common Birds”

“Chico's Own" husband and wife team, Roger and Carol, who have birded throughout the world, will present "The Amazing in the Familiar: Surprising Facts about Common Birds" at the "Gathering of Wings" Banquet on Saturday night. Their keynote presentation will give you some insight into the individual stories of common birds, such as how Cedar Waxwings tell each other apart, why birds migrate with one eye, what Shakespeare had to do with our avian fauna, and why Ravens talk to wolves.   

Special book signing by Roger and Carol will be from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm prior to the dinner and after keynote address.

Silent Auction

Silent auction begins at 5:30 pm

The vibrant Silent Auction tables will accompany us while we dine at the BMU. The Silent Auction will include a variety of exquisite items including works of art, wine, and services.

You won't be disappointed!
