Hello Listmembers--we have events going on at the Museum of Northern Arizona 
for Archaeology Month that didn't make it into the state program.  Speaking 
just for myself, I am giving a talk on "Birds on Ancient Pueblo Pottery" on 
Saturday March 16 at 4 pm in the Branigar-Chase discovery center at MNA in 
Flagstaff.  I have been documenting images of various life-forms on pottery 
(also rock art) for a number of years.  Birds are one of the most frequent 
images.  Having done papers on images of katsinas, women, and flowers, I 
 decided to to a presentation on birds.  I've pulled 70 of my best bird 
slides (pottery alone!) and am planning a fairly free-flowing slide talk and 
will welcome input from the bird watchers among us.  cheers, Kelley
