Annual Dinner

Guest Speaker: Kimball Garrett
This year's speaker is the renowned Kimball Garrett, who will present "Avian Invaders in California. While spending a lifetime birding in the Los Angeles area, Kimball developed an interest and passion for introduced bird species and has been at the forefront of efforts to document their status in California. His talk is a light-hearted look at a serious subject, with the goal of enlisting more birders in an effort to monitor the non-native species that are becoming an increasing component of our avifauna. Mr. Garrett is the Ornithology Collections Manager for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles - and he has provided tours of the LA Natural History collection to the participants in Sea and Sage's Junior Naturalists program. He is responsible for the care and use of the ornithological collections, additions of specimens to the collections, and the databases associated with the collections. A lifelong California resident, he grew up in Hollywood, received his undergraduate education in Zoology at UCLA and UC Berkeley, and did graduate work in Ornithology at UCLA. Additional information on Kimball Garrett and his program: This year's Annual Dinner speaker, Kimball Garrett, will explore California avian invaders. Few areas of North America are as prone to the release and establishment of non-native bird species as California. Whether introduced purposefully or accidentally, avian immigrants include: familiar bird species such as House Sparrow, European Starling and Rock Pigeon; additional species whose status is ever changing; and a parade of escapees. Invasive introduced plant and animal species pose serious ecological threats worldwide, but which of our bird species merit the "invasive" label? How do we track them and how do we decide which species "count" on avifaunal lists? How do we identify those escapees that could have come from anywhere? Spending a lifetime birding in the Los Angeles area, Kimball Garrett has been at the forefront of efforts to document their status in California. Mr. Garrett is the Ornithology Collections Manager for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Since the 1990s he has monitored nonnative, naturalized bird species in California, including 10 parrot species, various doves, and several seed-eating passerines. He was lead author for two species monographs in the authoritative Birds of North America series (Spotted Dove and the White-headed Woodpecker). Garrett is past president of Western Field Ornithologists and has served on the American Birding Association's Checklist Committee. His coauthored book Birds of Southern California: Status and Distribution remains the standard distributional reference for the region. This presentation by Mr. Garrett, one of southern California's most accomplished birders, will be a unique experience for all.
