The Friends of Green Lake meets at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011 at The Hearthstone (6720 E Green Lake Way N).

All are welcome to join the meeting and see a presentation from Martin Muller.  Muller will be presenting on ”Birds of Prey at Green Lake and Beyond.”  He will be sharing slides and videos of his work in banding birds of prey.

The Friends of Green Lake website shares this information about Muller:

Audubon Society Master Birder Martin Muller lived in the Green Lake neighborhood from 1983 to 2003, and studied the bird life of the lake extensively. His list of bird speciesseen at the lake includes both common year-round residents and rare migrants flying over the lake. This list is based on monthly counts from November 1987 through 1988 and weekly counts from January 1988 through May 1999 by Martin J. Muller with additional data from Eugene Hunn, Scott Richardson, and Ruth Taylor.

Martin periodically leads popular bird walks at Green Lake and has given presentations and slide shows on Green Lake birds under sponsorship of Friends of Green Lake, with images selected from his extensive collection of more than 2,000 photos. He is also an active member of the Falcon Research Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of field research, public education, and the conservation of raptors. They are currently involved in banding Peregrine Falcons to follow their migration and survival – a project involving participants from several countries. The Falcon Research Group has banded a total of 253 eyass Peregrine Falcons in the Pacific Northwest since 1995. See Martin’s story about a Peregrine Falcon at Green Lake.
