Join us for an evening with Matt Bartels, current secretary of the Washington Bird Records Committee, Washington Ornithological Society. Matt will discuss the processes and the main methods that lead to vagrancy and how that applies to Washington rarities and brings these unusual birds to our state. WOS uses bird records data to look for patterns in arrivals of the rarest birds in the state and Matt will discuss what might be next. Birders everywhere are keenly interested in vagrants and the opportunities to view unfamiliar species.
