Subject: [MDBirding] MBC meeting, May 16th
Wednesday, May 16 - Gail Mackiernan on Madagascar - Gail Mackiernan will,
finally, give her highly anticipated program on Madagascar. Madagascar is
the world’s fourth-largest island and is often referred to as the “Eighth
Continent”. Its unique fauna and flora have evolved during millions of
years of isolation and are a “naturalist’s dream.” Over 140 endemic species
of birds (and five endemic bird families!) are found here, as well as a
fascinating supporting cast of lemurs, chameleons, frogs, weird insects and
even stranger plants. Gail Mackiernan will talk about her November 2015
trip, which explored this ancient land from south to north and recorded
many of the island’s most sought-after species.

Our meetings are held at the Potomac Presbyterian Church, 10301 River Road.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m., refreshments 7:30 and meeting starts at 8:00 p.m.
