Birding the White Mountains, a 5-part series about the many species of birds found in beautiful Navajo and Apache Counties, will be offered at the Pinetop-Lakeside Town Hall at 6:30 on the last Fridays of the month this summer.

The 1-hour PowerPoint Presentations begin on May 28 and continue on June 25, July 30, August 27 and September 24. Follow-up optional field trips of ~1 mile will be held the next days—Saturdays from 6:00 to 8:00 AM at various birding hotspots.

Although the program is geared for beginners, there are challenges and good reviews for experienced birders too and each session will cover different material. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

The series is being presented by White Mountain Audubon Society President, Mary Williams. For more information, contact her at 480-235-1792 or
