February 13, 2014 – Regular Monthly Meeting

Heading West (Sierra Vista Birding)

Speaker: Larry Jernigan

Larry was inspired by a presentation he saw at an ASCA meeting to visit Sierra Vista, Arizona. Over three weeks he and his wife Jean saw and photographed 65 new birds, 11 of which were hummingbirds. He will share photos of birds and plants, as well as some experiences they had.

Larry Jernigan started out as a biology student doing research in Alaska. When drafted into the army he did medical research, partly in Asaka, Japan. Upon returning to civilian life he owned a photography studio for ten years before returning to school at age 41 to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. He practiced for 20 years before retiring to Heber Springs in 2005, where he worked for 4-H. He fully retired in 2012, and now spends his days doing wildlife photography and trying to finish a “honey-do” list.

Location: Fletcher Library.  Time: 7 PM.
