Free ESBA Presentation March 21, 2018 , ‘A Borneo Birding Adventure’ by Don Burlett at 7:00 PM at Monroe County Community College.

Please mark your calendars and join Erie Shores Birding Association Wednesday evening March 21st at 7:00pm for a fascinating presentation by Don Burlett.  Don was a Sr. Research Scientist for Gates Corporation; He worked in the rubber industry for almost 40 years and is now retired; he has been an avid birder since he was a young boy (started off on his own without assistance); now he has birded on 6 continents and 38 countries; his world life list has over 5100 species; ABA life list of over 770 species; President of Oakland Audubon Society (9 years) and was a board member at Seven Ponds Nature Center (8 years); he loves to bird and travel.

Borneo is a mysterious, far way place with lots of jungles, birds and animals. It’s also an island occupied by three countries. We’ll visit a variety of habitats to see many exotic birds and animals including orangutan, proboscis monkey and others. You can judge for yourself if it’s that mysterious.


Please mark your calendars and join Erie Shores Birding Association for a fascinating presentation by our own member Jerry Jourdan on April 18, 2018. Jerry will be speaking on "Celebrating Birds Through the Art of Digiscoping"  Jerry will present a non-technical program that demonstrates the power of digiscoping to photograph birds and other wildlife at magnifications not possible with today’s professional camera equipment. This 25 minute slide show set to music presents some of his best digiscoping work and includes birds from Michigan, backyard birds, rare birds, raptors, and non-avian subjects.


We meet in the Monroe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Road, Life Science Building (large ‘L’ on exterior of building), room 201.  For ease of access, there is an elevator as well as a second entrance to the classroom which contains no stairs. 


A brief membership meeting discussion precedes the presentation and our meetings are always FREE! Light refreshments are served. Please bring a friend, neighbor, fellow birder or family member to this wonderful presentation! If you'd like to join our club, individual memberships are $20/year and family memberships are $25/year to support the wildlife conservation efforts we participate in!
