August 3 Audubon Program

Free & Open to the Public.

On Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 7:00 PM the San Antonio Audubon Society (SAAS) and Bexar Audubon Society will have a combined monthly meeting at the San Antonio Zoo Education Center. The program “One of a Kind—Monotypic Families of Birds” will be presented by David Sarkozi, an organizer and leader of trips across Texas and in Central America for more than 15 years. He is very knowledgeable about birds that have no other living close relatives: those that are distinct enough to be placed not just in their own genus but in their own family.  David is also in the middle of a Texas ‘Big Year’…he has tallied 470 species as of July!  You can follow him on his blog:  DavidsBigYear.blogspot.com
