Birding Workshop with Marion Porter

November 28, 2015

The Saturna FAB Building at East Point was filled to capacity, standing room only, for the presentation made by Marian Porter. She presented a slideshow of stunning photos of local birds, photographed by local resident Petrus Pienaar, and talked about their ID’s and their habits.

The weather was perfect and everyone fully enjoyed the walk around East Point that followed the slideshow. Highlights of the bird sightings: a funny glaucous gull with a purple sea star in it’s beak and a rare sighting of a red-breasted sapsucker.
