Tampa Audubon Program on American Oystercatchers

Come learn about one of Tampa Bay's most charismatic and imperiled birds at Tampa Audubon's monthly meeting this Thursday, January 14 at 7 p.m.

The meeting will be held at Century Buick/Pontiac/GMC, 3308 West Hillsborough Avenue, Tampa, and is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ann Hodgson, Sanctuary Manager of Audubon of Florida's Florida Coastal Islands Sanctuaries, will speak on American Oystercatchers of Hillsborough Bay. Hillsborough Bay, that part of Tampa Bay that includes the City of Tampa, is home to the largest nesting population of these rare birds.
