Washington Bird Year / Jennifer McKeirnan
April 12 @ 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Come meet Jen McKeirnan who recently completed a Washington Bird Year. The following is from Jen’s website. “My name is Jen McKeirnan. I am a birder and amateur photographer. In 2014/2015, I took the Seattle Audubon Society’s Master Birder class taught by Dennis Paulson. We studied 346 bird species within the state of Washington. It was shortly after that class when I decided that I would try to locate all 346 birds that we studied within a calendar year keeping within the boundaries of Washington State. I recognize that there are multiple ways to document birds. I chose to photograph birds because that is what I enjoy doing. I also will occasionally document birds using eBird, as well.”
“This project is a personal challenge that will take me around Washington State appreciating birds in their habitat. My goal is to photograph 346 different bird species or discover how close I can get to that goal. At the same time, I am taking a habitat panoramic photo where each bird was found and a GPS location. This website was designed for anyone that is interested in following my progress. I also hope it inspires people to appreciate all of our unique birds in Washington State and their habitats.”
