Title: Birds of SLO and Northern Santa Barbara Counties


Program Curated and Presented by Al King

Music by Al King


Date: Monday, October 16th, 2023, 7:00 pm


Description: Morro Coast Audubon Society is taking this opportunity to showcase the splendor of birds that live in the varied habitats found in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties. Our county hosts a remarkable variety of landscapes, from sandy beaches to oak woodlands, savannas and alkali flats. The wide range of birds that live in or pass through these landscapes on their migration routes is nothing short of astonishing. This is your opportunity to get a close-up look at these birds as they live their lives - hunting, sparring, feeding their chicks, bathing, loafing - in photos taken by some of the Central Coast's finest nature photographers. The program is set to original music created and recorded by the curator and presenter of the program, Al King.


Bio: Al King has had a lifelong interest in the natural world. He received his BA from UCSB in Environmental Biology with a special interest in plant ecology. He picked up an interest in photography from his father early on and has enjoyed photographing plants, animals and landscapes throughout his life. Al has had the great fortune to be able to live on farms and ranches most of his adult life.


MCAS is excited to offer a Hybrid Meeting for this program! We are giving our community the chance to meet in-person (Option 1 below), or join us via Zoom (Option 2 below).


If you are planning on coming in person, please consider helping out with the hospitality committee. This would involve bringing some cookies or making coffee and hot water for tea. We need a few helpful people to make this a successful event. Contact Wendy at if this sounds like something you would be willing to do.


All MCAS Community Programs are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.

No signup/registration required to attend.
