Description: At Morro Coast Audubon Society’s Annual Members’ Meeting, we will present an all new program that, as in the October 2023 program, will showcase the splendor of birds that live in the varied habitats found in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties, from sandy beaches to oak woodlands, savannahs and alkali flats. The wide range of birds that live in or pass through these landscapes is truly amazing. Join us as we get a close-up look at these birds as they live their lives, in photos taken by some of the Central Coast’s finest nature photographers. The program will be 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 in Environmental Biology with a special interest in plant ecology from UCSB. He developed an interest in photography at a young age, and has enjoyed photographing plants, animals and landscapes throughout his life. Another passion of Al’s is playing and composing music which you will have the opportunity to hear as an accompaniment to this program.

MCAS is excited to offer this program as an in-person event. If you are unable to attend in person, you will be able to view the program just a few days later on our YouTube Channel.

Please consider helping out with setting out cookies, coffee, and tea before the program and cleaning up afterwards. We especially need a kitchen clean-up crew to help this go smoothly. If you can help, please contact Wendy at
