Wednesday, April 19 - Phil Davis on the Azores and Madeira - In 2016, Phil and Barbara lead a group of birders on a 17-day grand tour of the Azores and Madeira Islands. The tour took them to seven different islands where they targeted 12 endemic bird species and 24 endemic subspecies. A key tour objective was to observe the endemic subspecies and put them “into the bank” since genetic analysis continues to dominate avian taxonomy and endemic island subspecies have high potential for future splits.
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. Welcome to our site and happy birding.
