General Membership Meeting with Tim Boyer

     This month's exciting membership meeting! Mark your calendar. See below for date, time, and location.

Understanding Shorebirds, the Miracle of Migration. Join award-winning nature photographer Tim Boyer in exploring the epic trans-ocean migration of some of our shorebirds.  Eight of the 42 common shorebirds found in Washington will be discussed, including bar-tailed godwits, Pacific golden-plovers, sanderlings and other birds that cross the majority of the Pacific Ocean. We’ll look at where they migrate, why they migrate and how they are able to travel so far. These global migrants require global conservation and climate change solutions. In an effort to understand their remarkable journeys we need to look beyond the North American borders and see where shorebirds spend most of their lives.Tim Boyer is a full-time photographer and a graduate of Seattle Audubon’s Master Birder Program. His images have been published in many bird and nature magazines, and his fine art prints are sold at art festivals around the Pacific Northwest.  He enjoys sharing his knowledge of photography and birds through workshops and presentations. Shorebirds are his favorite grouping of birds, and he spends many weekends on the Washington Coast catching their images. His photography can be found at
