“Birds of the Southern Oceans and Antarctica”

April 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


April 18, 2018 OPAS Program

“Birds of the Southern Oceans and Antarctica”  

Presented by Bruce Fryxell

Dungeness River Audubon Center at 7 p.m.

The southern oceans are home to albatrosses and petrels, some of the most spectacular flying birds on Earth. These birds are renowned for their skillful flights riding the winds over turbulent oceans, well adapted to spend their entire lives at sea and only coming ashore for nesting. At the April OPAS meeting, we are excited that Bruce Fryxell is presenting photos of these fascinating birds that he took over several trips to Antarctica, New Zealand, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands.

Bruce recently retired from his career in physics, with research interests into astronomy, aerospace applications, and climate modeling. He moved here from Michigan and has since become an active participant in OPAS activities. He is an avid traveler and nature photographer whose photos have been featured in several books, magazines, and TV shows. Please join us as Bruce teaches us about these “most legendary of birds.”
