    PPSA PhotoU: "Birds, Birds, Birds!"

    FREE presentation for PPSA Members!!


    Join us for an amazing evening of PhotoU as Ruth Hoyt, virtual speaker, presents an overview program about birds, bird behavior and how she photographs them. This brand-new virtual program is derived from several in-depth programs she created since the COVID pandemic began.

    She strongly believes in learning about the birds in your immediate area such as your back yard helps you develop the knowledge and skills to photograph birds anywhere.

    Ruth has noticed that several of her private students have become better bird photographers as a result of sheltering at home. Because their travel and usual activities are restricted, they have paid more attention to the birds and other wildlife just outside their kitchen windows.

    Be prepared to be both entertained and educated by this virtual program; there's something for everyone!
