The Night Stalkers: An Audubon Show

Ken Kneidel will present a slide show about the population of Yellow-crowned Night Herons that live in suburban Charlotte, NC. The show is at the monthly Audubon Society meeting Thursday May 8 at 7:30 p.m. So skulk on over to the fellowship hall of the Sharon Seventh Day Adventist Church (920 Sharon Amity) for the meeting. Refreshments start at 7:15 p.m. Don't forget to bring a cup for your coffee or soda.

These aren't your typical heron. They are night-feeding
rarely seen herons. The Kneidels have been keeping
track of these elegant birds for a number of years now.
Ken's show will cover what they've learned about these
birds - what they look like, food preferences, where
they like to nest and how they are similar and/or
different from other herons in the area. He will also
try to answer the big question -
what are they doing
in an urban/suburban area
