Birds and Their Habitats of the Western Sierra
Guest Speaker: Ted Beedy
Wednesday, June 27th
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Auburn Library
350 Nevada Street, Auburn, CA 95603
Ted Beedy will take us on a virtual journey across the Sierra from the oak savanna in the west, up through conifer forests, into the majestic alpine regions. We'll see and hear the stunning diversity of birds that make the Sierra their home. We'll learn how they use the varied habitats, which species are in decline, and which are expanding and increasing.
Ted recently co-authored Birds of the Sierra Nevada: Their Natural History, Status, and Distribution.

He taught ornithology and other biology classes at UC Davis and California State University, Sacramento before working as an environmental consultant at Jones & Stokes in Sacramento. In 2006, he started his own firm, Beedy Environmental Consulting, in Nevada City.
