The Chapel Hill Bird Club will hold its regular monthly meeting on Monday, September 25, at 7:30 pm at Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. The featured speaker will be Kent Fiala who will talk about a Birding Tour of Cuba. Dr. Fiala was among a group of 12 birders from the Carolina Bird Club who toured Cuba early this year. The group saw 147 bird species including 24 of the Cuban endemics, Cuba's national bird - the Cuban Trogon, and the world's smallest bird - the Bee Hummingbird. Also seen were an additional 24 species that are endemic to the West Indies, such as the Great Lizard-Cuckoo and flamingos. The group also visited Che Guevara's hideout, the Bay of Pigs, and Hemingway's favorite bars. Kent will share photos from the trips.
Admission is free and the public is invited.
