This talk has been rescheduled for the general meeting on Wednesday, May 17 at 7:30p.m. in Red Men’s Hall, 332 West King St., East Berlin, PA. The presenter, a member of the South Mountain Audubon Society, will share her program entitled “Birds With A Gettysburg Address”. Bonnie Portzline is an avid birder and photographer. She will feature not only birds but also Gettysburg Battlefield monuments with bird ornamentation.

Bonnie has presented summer evening campfire programs at the Gettysburg Battlefield amphitheater. She is currently working on a photo collection of birds that Ike and Mamie Eisenhower may have seen when they resided at their Gettysburg farm. She delights in sharing her photography and knowledge of birds with audiences with wide-ranging backgrounds and interests.

Attendance at this program is a perfect way to welcome Spring while combining history with nature. You are encouraged to come out for an evening of spectacular visual images coupled with a historical narrative. Society members and the general public are welcome. As always there will be refreshments following the program.
