November Meeting

The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club hosts a presentation by Greg Miller and a screening of "The Big Year: Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession", a 2011 comedy film starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson.  Greg is a nationally recognized birder and bird guide, and was featured in the book, "The Big Year," by Mark Obmascik (2004), as well as being the inspiration for the film character acted by Jack Black.  

 Gregg will discuss birds and also his experiences as the bird consultant of the film.

This will be held at the LaBelle in South Charleston at 6:30pm, Monday, November 21.  There will be no charge for the event.

Anyone interested in birds is welcome. Hope to see you all there.
