Professional nature photographer Kevin Ebi documented a year in the lives of Puget Sound-area bald eagles – one of the few eagle populations that doesn’t migrate. The resulting book “Year of the Eagle” tells the story of how an eagle family works together to pass on essential life skills to their young. Through a collection of stunning imagery, Kevin shows how the eaglets develop and learn to fly, survive their first winter in the upper Skagit, and learn to hunt in Hood Canal. Based in Lynnwood, Kevin’s work has appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian, National Wildlife, and on a U.S. postage stamp. Kevin will be selling and signing books during the Keynote event. Doors open at 7pm at the Edmonds Plaza Room, 650 Main Street. ◆ FREE 9/14 F 7:30-9pm

Kick off our all-day Bird Fest celebration at the Frances Anderson Center with Noah Strycker, who in 2015 became the first human to see more than half of the planet’s bird species in a single, year-long, round-theworld birding trip. Anything could have happened, and a lot did. He was scourged by blood-sucking leeches, suffered fevers and sleep deprivation, survived airline snafus and car breakdowns and mudslides and torrential floods, skirted war zones, and had the time of his life. Birding on seven continents and carrying only a pack on his back, Strycker enlisted the enthusiastic support of local birders to tick more than 6,000 species. This humorous and inspiring presentation about Strycker’s epic World Big Year will leave you with a new appreciation for the birds and birders of the world. ◆ FREE 9/15 Sat 10:45-11:45am

Pickle-ball is the fastest growing sport in America. Why? Because it is fun, great exercise, social, easy on the joints, and simple to learn. Congressman Joel Pritchard and two friends created the game about 50 years ago when kids going out to play badminton could not find the birdies. However, they did find the net, a wiffle ball, and some ping-pong paddles. Little did they know a new sport would be born. Come learn the basics of the game, get exercise, and - most importantly - have fun! Balls and paddles provided.
