Upcoming Programs

California Birds Annotated in Haiku
Wednesday, January 17, 2018
7:30 pm-9:00 pm
Kimball Garrett

Combine a self­professed competent birder and a lousy poet and you get January's quirky take on birds and birding in California. You'll hear selections from Kimball's work on California's birds, accompanied by his observations on bird and birder behavior that inspired his haiku. Kimball will illustrate his wry poetry with a selection of photographs of birds of California.

Kimball is the ornithology collections manager at the Natural Museum of Los Angeles County and has published several seminal works covering the birds of California, Warblers of North America and more. Many will also know him as the friendly face of eBird reviewing in Los Angeles County.

David Bell

Download David Bell's presentation

In 2013 David Bell and several other birders set out to see as many birds in Los Angeles County as possible. Dave crisscrossed just about every portion of the county and ended the year seeing 354 species (7 of which are introduced species). Dave will share photos and discuss the most compelling birds for each month of 2013, including some of the "birds that got away." This is sure to be a fun and motivating program as you continue your quest to see all the birds!
