Learn about Whidbey Island’s kingfishers

The Whidbey Audubon Society presents “Bolt Out of the Blue: the Belted Kingfisher” on April 10. This program explores one of the oddest of Northwest birds — one moment, miners burrowing into bluffs, and the next, divers flinging themselves at the water. Learn how they make a living, and the survival challenges they face.

Coupeville residents Steve and Martha Ellis will lead the talk at 7:15 p.m. April 10 at the Coupeville Recreation Hall. Together the Ellises have led field trips and given talks on a variety of natural history topics for 25 years.
