Pilchuck Audubon Society April Program Meeting
Apr 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The April Program Meeting for Pilchuck Audubon Society will be “The Secret Lives of Pigeon Guillemots” presented by Ann Casey, past president of the Whidbey Island Audubon Society. It will be at the Everett Firefighter’s Hall, 2411 Hewitt Avenue in Everett.
Pigeon Guillemots, chunky black and white seabirds with fire engine red feet, are the only seabirds known to breed and nest in the sandy bluffs surrounding Whidbey Island. These charismatic seabirds are a recognized indicator species for the health of Puget Sound. Since 2004 the Whidbey Audubon Society’s Pigeon Guillemot Research Group have worked with over 50 trained volunteers collecting data from 25 known nesting sites surrounding Whidbey Island.
