Yolo Basin Foundation will begin its Flyway Nights speaker series on Thursday, Nov. 7, with a presentation by Ted Beedy, co-author of the recently released “Birds of the Sierra Nevada: Their Natural History, Status and Distribution.” He will discuss his book and highlight the talk with photos of Sierra birds.

Beedy received three degrees from UC Davis. His master’s thesis concerned birds of the Donner Summit region, and his doctoral research focused on conifer forest bird communities of Yosemite National Park. He is also the co-author of “Discovering Sierra Birds.”

He worked for 20 years as an environmental consultant for Jones and Stokes in Sacramento, and now has his own firm, Beedy Environmental Consulting.

Beedy co-authored “The Birds of the Sierra Nevada” with Ed Pandolfino, and the illustrations were done by avian artist Keith Hanson. John Muir Laws, the author and illustrator of “The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada,” describes the book: “The product of over 15 years of research and painting, this is a magnificent resource for all who love the mountains and the biodiversity within them.”

The Yolo Basin Foundation offers Flyway Nights talks at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month from November to April. The talks are held at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters at 45211 Chiles Road (also called County Road 32B).

A $5 donation to support the foundation’s wetland education programs is suggested, and Yolo Basin members are free.
