Pilchuck Audubon Society is proud to announce our March Program Meeting which will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 9 at the Everett Firefighter’s Hall, 2411 Hewitt Avenue in Everett. We will be hosting Jon Houghton for an evening of Fun, Sun, and Beautiful Birds. Jon will share his recent trip to The Asa Wright Center on Trinidad Island (off the northern coast of Venezuela), where he and his wife Kathleen have spent 10 days observing and photographing more than 180 species of birds, including his favorite bird of the trip, the White-crested Emerald Hummingbird. Jon has traveled and birded in many areas around the world. We thought this sunny warm place looked special and lots of fun, and Jon agreed to share his photos and experiences there. Jon lives in Edmonds and has worked as a marine biologist, mostly around Edmonds and Puget Sound for a noteworthy career. He continues to work in Alaska when he is not out birding in some exotic location. His PhD is from the University of Washington, and he is a graduate of the Seattle Audubon Master Birders program. Over the past years, he had also participated in the Edmonds and Everett Christmas Bird Counts; he frequently leads birding trips for Seattle Audubon.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments are served.
