Manning) The November SWNM Audubon monthly meeting on Friday Nov. 2 will feature Dave Manning of Arivaca, AZ and British Columbia. His program is titled “The Old Man and the Vultures.” The talk is based on a book he just published with the same title. The program starts at 7 p.m. at Harlan Hall, 12th and Alabama Streets, on the campus of Western New Mexico University. 

Dave, a birder for over 50 years, fell in love at age 65 with vultures one summer when he stumbled upon a small Turkey Vulture chick peeking out of its nest. He will discuss the three species of Vultures in North America, with special emphasis on a Turkey Vulture nest site on Pender Island, BC. He has observed this nest from mating to migration. His book also will be available for viewing and signing.

Join us for this interesting presentation. Light refreshments will follow the meeting. All are welcome to attend. For more information contact swnmaudubon@gmail.com.
