At the January 18th meeting John Spahr will present a program titled Owls: Birds of Mystery and Majesty. John, who lives in Staunton, began birding in his early teens in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. John is a member of several of his local bird clubs and has served as VP and program chair for the Augusta Bird Club for nearly a decade. He has also been actively involved with the Virginia Society of Ornithology, including serving a term as president. He has traveled abroad
to see and learn about birds and has visited many countries in Central and South America, several locales in the Caribbean (including Cuba), Southern Africa, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea.
His program will include a short introduction of man's association with owls and will also explore some of the unique anatomic, physiologic and behavioral aspects of the species. Each owl species that has occurred in Virginia will be reviewed in varying detail.
Plan to join us on January 18 at 7:30 pm in Room 150, Millington Hall on the W&M campus. Barb Streb will be providing the refreshments. Don't forget to use your parking permit. (We are back in Millington)
