This meeting is for the birds — and the birders who love them. Nancy and Jim DeWitt will present “a photo journey to some of the last frontier’s premier and lesser-known birding destinations” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 9 at Deer Flat Refuge Visitor Center. It is the monthly meeting for the Southwestern Idaho Birders Association and is open to the public, according to a press release about the meeting.
The presentation will cover birds “from the remote Pribilof Islands and Gambell to shorebird festivals and Christmas Bird Counts at 40 below zero” and will include photos and stories from the DeWitt’s Alaskan adventures.
