Dr. Pete Myers will present a program on "The Evolution of the Bird Photographer". Dr. Myers is an avid birder and bird photographer with decades of field experience. He received a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley for his field research on shorebirds, which took him from Arctic Alaska to southern Argentina. He was a research ornithologist at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. His photographs appeared on four covers of American Birds, which is Audubon’s birding magazine. In 2009, he co-created BirdsEye, the iPhone birding app that uses eBird to help birders find birds and great places to go birding. In 2011, he surprised the Virginia birding community by discovering and documenting the first state record of the Violet-Green Swallow near his home in central Virginia. His talks include stunning close-ups of common and rare species.

The Lynchburg Bird Club meets on the second Wednesday every month from September through May (except December) at 7 p.m. at the Martin Science Hall on the campus of Randolph College.  After a few brief announcements, bird sighting reports, and club business, we enjoy a program presented by a featured speaker.  Anyone with an interest in birds (including non-members) is welcome at bird club meetings.  Bird club members and guests may park in the Randolph College and Magnolia Foods parking lot across Norfolk Ave. from Martin Science Hall.
