Program features birds of the Sierra Nevada with Ted Beedy and Ed Pandolfino

At the June 6 meeting of the Sierra Foothills Audubon Society the Ted Beedy and Ed Pandolfino will take the audience on a virtual transect of the Sierra Nevada range from the oak savanna in the west, through serene conifer forests of the west side, up into the majestic alpine regions, and down the steep eastern escarpment to the pinyon/juniper woodlands and open steppes of the Great Basin. Along the way the group will see and hear the stunning diversity of birds that make the Sierra their home. We’ll learn about which birds are in decline and which are expanding and increasing. We’ll address some mysteries surrounding some of those species and discuss how birders can help to solve them.

Ted Beedy co-authored Discovering Sierra Birds and has written numerous technical publications and articles on Sierra birds. Ed Pandolfino is President of Western Field Ornithologists, a Regional Editor for Northern California for the North American Birds, and has published more than two dozen articles on status and distribution of western birds. The guest duo co-authored a new book, “Birds of the Sierra Nevada: Their Natural History, Status, and Distribution,” illustrated by Keith Hansen and published by U.C. Press.

The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. on June 6 in the community room of the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City.
