On May 16, 2009 Galena residents celebrated International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) with a bird walk and slide show featuring a special guest from Poland. In keeping with this year’s IMBD theme “Celebrate Birds in Culture,” FWS volunteer Kuba Gorny shared initial findings from his research on Koyukon Athabascan bird stories, observations, and potential impacts on climate change. Last year’s Songbird Coffeehouse was so popular, we served shade grown coffee as part of this year’s event as well.
