‘Birding Arizona’s Sky Islands’

MARQUETTE – The Laughing Whitefish Audubon Society will host a presentation on “Birding Arizona’s Sky Islands” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Community room of Peter White Public Library, Marquette.

Gary Palmer will share pictures and stories of his August birding trip to southeastern Arizona.

Although August seems like an unlikely time to bird in the desert, Arizona’s warm temperatures and monsoon rains bring a “second spring” during which local birds are bustling with activity.
