Please join us on February 13, 2019 for a fascinating program on Tanzania birds by Dominic Sherony.  Also on the program is a science report by Tice Supplee of Audubon Arizona about important avian research in our area.  Your Board members will provide some up to date information about your chapter as well.  Please come early for coffee and conversation at 6:30 PM.

The program takes place at the West Valley UU Church, located at the North West Corner of 59th Avenue and Cholla in Glendale.

Dominic Sherony writes: “I will highlight aspects of my recent trip to Tanzania focusing mostly on birds. Tanzania has an unusually diverse population of bird species. It is central to many local and unusual species and is host to a wide variety of Asian migrants.  I was in Tanzania when the many migrants were arriving. As a country it is bisected by the Great Rift Valley and other geological features that created different types of habitats. I will briefly describe some of these habitats.”

He writes further about his extensive Audubon resume:  “I was born and grew up in northern Illinois and attended University of Detroit and Illinois Institute of Technology, completing degrees in Chemical Engineering.  I worked for Xerox Corporation for 31 years after graduate school. In that period, I took up bird watching as a hobby in 1972 and have been an active birder since but especially after my retirement.  I have many and varied interests in birding including leading local trips, active in New York State, was a member of New York State Avian Records Committee for eleven years, was a region co-coordinator for the NYS breeding bird atlas, have written numerous papers about birds, volunteer at a Braddock Bay Bird Observatory, enjoy the challenge of photographing birds, and occasionally give talks.”
