Pre Program Free Birding Class: 30 Minutes 
Time: 6:45 PM


General Meeting & Program
 Time: 7:30 PM
 
 Birding Southeastern Washington
Speaker:  Mike & MerryLynn Denny

Well known birding couple, Mike and MerryLynn Denny come our way to talk about birding in their area, Southeast Washington and Walla Walla.
 
These avid birders go into the field very frequently and report their findings online at Tweeters.  They always know of rare bird sightings, either because they have found a rare bird or hear from their network of birders.  Come listen to their stories and hints about birding locales.  They know of many migrant traps and special places to bird.   

Mike has also researched the geography of Wallula, where the Walla Walla River meets the Columbia and has written about it.  This unique spot is populated by waterfowl most of the winter.   It will be a fun evening to talk birds with experienced birders who like to share information.
