Panama: Birding on the Edge of a Continent
Wednesday, November 21, 2018
7:30 pm-9:00 pm
Luke Tiller

Though Panama only covers an area the size of South Carolina, it boasts a bird list well north of 900 species, ranging from the majestic Harpy Eagle to one of the globe’s smallest passerines, the Black-capped Pygmy-Tyrant.

The country, which sits between two continents, has something to offer birders of all levels. Some of the region’s best birding is just a short ride from Panama City, and there are a wealth of accommodations from which to delve into the world of tropical birding. Panama also promises some interesting regional endemics for the more seasoned or adventurous birder.

Join PAS Program Chair Luke Tiller to see some of the great places and birds that call this country home.

Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons: Restoring Raptors to the Channel Islands
Wednesday, Jan 16, 2019
Annie Little

Channel Island Bald Eagles were a core constituent of Southern California’s Bald Eagle population, and these nesting birds were equally an important element of the ecosystem of the islands. By the 1960s, however, the eagles had disappeared due to the combined effects of DDT, egg collection and human persecution. Similarly, Peregrine Falcons suffered the same dramatic declines mid-century and like the eagles, were also extirpated within that same time frame.

Come join Annie Little from US-FWS to discover how, despite the challenges, these majestic species were eventually brought back to their ancestral homes. This is a story almost forty years in the making and includes innovative programs involving multiple agencies.
