May Key Dates & Events
May 1, 2007
7:30 p.m.
  Birding By Ear
  We are fortunate to have Larry Liese speak at our banquet. A long-time member of Tucson Audubon, Larry hails from Vermont and is a terrific guide whether in Mexico, Central America, or Arizona. He leads field trips, birding and natural history trips throughout southern Arizona, as well as Belize, Chihuahua, Jalisco, Mata Ortiz and other south of the border spots. Larry started the Dastardly Duos column for Tucson Audubon and teaches a course on birding by ear. He loves sharing his passion for birds with people of all levels and his excitement and enthusiasm are contagious. Come and learn about birding by ear just in time to practice. NOTE: The May program will be associated with our Annual Banquet. Although there is no charge to attend our general membership meetings, the annual banquet does require a dinner reservation and associated cost. Check our Web site, newsletter, or contact a board member for location information.
