Register: Young, Gifted, and Wild About Birds: Joanna Wu, UCLA
Anyone who has been on a group songbird walk knows that it’s the male Scarlet Tanager, the male Indigo Bunting, the male Blackburnian Warbler that draws the gazing eyes.

Join us on Thursday, February 2, at 12:30 p.m. for her fascinating presentation.
