Ever wondered where to find particular species of birds in Oregon? Or wanted to know more about those birds than you can find in a field guide? Sarah Swanson and Max Smith provide the answers and celebrate Oregon's favorite birds with their newly published book, "Must See Birds of the Pacific Northwest: 85 Unforgettable Species, Their Fascinating Lives, and How to Find Them." In their book, Sarah and Max group birds in a fresh, fun and thoughtful way by using categories based on interesting traits like big birds, colorful birds and killer birds.

Portland Audubon’s Nature Night lecture series kicks off the 2013-2014 season by welcoming Sarah and Max for a talk and book signing. Featuring amazing photographs, they will share stories about the natural history, behavior and habitat of some of their favorite birds, as well as tales of their experiences scouting and researching for the book. They will highlight bird profiles including exactly where to find them in Oregon and Washington.

Sarah Swanson was Portland Audubon’s Camp Director and Onsite Programs Coordinator from 2006 to 2011. She currently works for WaterWatch of Oregon while biologist Max Smith studies riparian forest ecology as a contractor for the U.S. Forest Service. Expert birders, they have co-led the popular “Murre the Merrier” Birdathon team for seven years, and often lead field trips for Portland Audubon in Washington County.

New and experienced birders alike will enjoy this evening devoted to the pure joy of bird watching! To reserve a copy of the book, please call Portland Audubon's Nature Store at 503-292-9453.
