April, 2007

Far more than your average birdwatcher, Mike Yip is a man on a mission! He 'accidentally' discovered the joys of photographing birds only a few short years ago, but the Nanoose Bay resident has been hooked ever since. In his first book, proudly presenting 124 colorful images of frequently and infrequently seen west coast species, the author's descriptive narratives portray a deep understanding and empathy for bird life, and the ecological challenges they face. Yip's new edition of "Vancouver Island Birds", will soon be hot off the presses, containing another 90 species not included in his first beautiful, full color book.

The photographer has been invited to share his wonderful images in an audio visual presentation on Sunday, April 15th, following our community vegan potluck supper in the Back Hall. Yip's desire to share his enthusiasm with other nature lovers is born out on line, where anyone can view the birds contained in his first book for free and enjoy referencing their own sightings. Please come on out to celebrate and learn more about the fascinating feathered species that share our island region!
