February 18th Program 7:30 PM

"Spring Birding in Southeast Arizona:

Elegant Trogons, Spotted Owls, and White-eared Hummingbirds"

Presenter: Lauri Shaffer

Lauri Shaffer will share her adventures and photos from last year’s Spring Birding trip to Southeast Arizona, along with fellow Audubon member, Bonnie Ingram, and Road Scholars. We will learn how successful they were in their quest to find the Elegant Trogon in Cave Creek Canyon! More stories will be shared about birding in the Sierra Vista region including Miller Canyon in the Huachucas, the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, the famous Patagonia rest stop, and finally Patton's yard.

Lauri Shaffer is a retired part-time ESL teacher, nature photographer, and blogger from Muncy Hills. She was caught by the birding bug in her early 20's and it has remained a passion ever since. Photography has served to fuel the fire of seeing more birds! Traveling to hot spots in North America and Costa Rica has provided opportunities for photography and blogging on her website, BirdingPictures.com, and her Facebook page, Birding Pictures. She is on the board as secretary of Seven Mountains Audubon.
