This is an hour-long presentation looking at the incredible migratory paths of shorebirds and how and why they migrate such long distances.

   Our speaker this month is Tim Boyer, of Seattle. Tim Boyer Photography specializes in birds and water landscapes. He offers workshops for bird photography that typically are held in wonderful locations to photograph birds, from sites in Washington State to San Diego. He sells his photography and advertises his workshops through his website http://www.timboyerphotography.com.
