The Ebro Delta is the largest wetland in Catalonia (Spain), and one of the most important bird areas in the western Mediterranean Sea with over 300 species of overwintering and transient birds including the awesome and unique Hoopoe.

Lynn Barber holds the record for the tenth highest North American Big Year total ever. When she found 723 birds in 2008, it was the highest Big Year total ever for a woman. She set the Texas Big Year all-time record (522 species) in 2005, she found 350 species in one year in South Dakota, and this year she has already smashed all existing records for an Alaska Big Year by finding 299 species thus far (as of October 9, 2016, 307 species to round out the year).
If you’re looking for the perfect way to learn what birding is all about, we will present a course in “Birding for Beginners” at Anchorage Audubon’s March 16 Meeting. This is a fabulous opportunity to learn about Birds and Birding from the beginning, and it’s just in time for our Spring Migration arrivals.
Believe it or not, Spring is on the way, and what better way to celebrate than by scouring the Anchorage Municipality for birds.
Although we aren’t quite yet sure what the program will be, we are quite sure it will be good, cookies will be served, and we would Love to Have You Join Us.
