Date: 5/15/18 5:00 am From: Stephanie Lovell <amorellovell...> Subject: [MDBirding] Montgomery Bird Club, May meeting
*Don't forget to put MBC on your calendar for tomorrow, May 16, to hear
about Madagascar with Gail Mackiernan!*
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.
