PLACE: Detwiler Auditorium, Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community, 1501 Virginia Avenue, Harrisonburg, VA 22802
PROGRAM: Birds of Alaska by Dr. Marshall Faintich
We will take another birding adventure with Marshall to Alaska, the 49th state “North to the Future.” This presentation highlights photos of woodland and pelagic avian species, along with some fascinating mammals, observed during a mid-summer, two-week exploration of south-central Alaska from Fairbanks to the Katmai peninsula. Interesting are northwestern species and juveniles of species that breed only in the far northern latitudes. Marshall is the author of “A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Wintergreen.” His wildlife photos have appeared in newspapers, magazines, web sites, government reports and presentations.
