Birding the Ebro Delta and Catalonia, Spain

 at the BP Energy Center – 7:00 PM

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. Come and learn about this important bird area and others in Catalonia with Enric Fernandez, who lived in Spain for 22 years before moving to Alaska.

Enric will share with us pictures from his last birding trip there in November 2016, and provide tips on species to look for, places to visit, and bird identification. To top it off, he will share a place in Catalonia where a hungry birder can purchase a 2.2 pound croissant to start the day right!

With so much rich history, it’s like out of the story books!
