Presenters: ABDNHA Members Sanjiv Nanda and Urmi Ray
With wonderful photography, videos, and a great adventure to share, Sanjiv and Urni will
take you along on a trekking journey that took them 18,000 feet above sea level, to Everest
Base Camp in October 2014. The scenery is fantastic, and it is matched by the story itself,
starting in the lowlands and steadily progressing higher through other-worldly landscapes
of icy peaks, glaciers, and high desert.

Turkey Vultures, California Condors and the Migration of Raptors
through the Desert

March 19, Friday, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (Webinar)
Presenter: Kurt Leuschner, Professor of Natural History, College of the Desert
Each fall and spring the desert comes alive with migrating birds. Turkey Vultures are one
of the earliest and most interesting of these migrants. Where are they going? What special
habits and traits set Turkey Vultures apart from other migrating raptors? Are they really
raptors or scavengers or both? Many of the secrets about Turkey Vultures, California
Condors, and the migration of birds will be shared in this presentation.

No charge, but donations are very much appreciated.
