Consider the roadrunner, an icon of the Southwest desert. Yet few people have had the opportunity to observe these birds nesting, living, raising a family.

Doris Evans has been fortunate enough to dedicate a large part of her life to the study of these birds and, during her talk, she will share her photography, videos, and insights as she tells the story of the spring that she spent in observation of a family of roadrunners. Doris brings a unique perspective that fuses expert knowledge of her scientific study of these birds and her intimate experience as a witness to undisturbed desert life. Over a two month period, she spent many hours observing and photographing them as they went through the phases of nest building, egg laying, chick feeding, and fledging.

During this heartwarming presentation, you will consider the roadrunner in an entirely different light and gain fresh perspective on life in the desert.

Talks at 12 noon and 2 PM.
