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.
