Golden Eagle Audubon Society
Annual Banquet & Silent Auction
March 9th, 2019
$50 per ticket
The speaker for the 2019 GEAS Banquet will be Nathan Pieplow. The Amazing Sounds of Birds. What bird uses its voice to echolocate inside dark caves? Which bird sings a duet with itself? Which bird sings over a thousand different songs? In this presentation for general audiences, Nathan Pieplow, author of the Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds, shares some of his most remarkable audio from over a decade of recording birds in the field. In this captivating program you will see the sounds as well as hear them, and learn the stories of the birds that made them, and what some of those birds are actually saying.
Nathan Pieplow is the author of the Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds. He blogs about bird sounds at the website Earbirding.com. He is one of the authors of the Colorado Birding Trail and a former editor of the journal Colorado Birds. He teaches writing and rhetoric at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He is the associate director of Global Studies Residential Academic Program at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Please join us for this annual event, which raises funds for GEAS & our projects: the New Roots Program, Native Plant Network, and Blacks Creek Bird Reserve, to name a few. In addition to our dynamic presenter, we will have a silent auction, raffle and dessert sales ($5) during the social hour, starting at 6:00 PM. Dinner will be served at 7:00 PM.
