PENDLETON — Ice, penguins and the cold comforts of living and working in Antarctica will be featured during a slide show during a Pendleton Bird Club event. Among Penguins is Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Rogers Room at Pendleton First Presbyterian Church, 201 S.W. Dorion Ave.

Presented by Oregon birder and author Noah Strycker, the 25-year-old spent three months during the Antarctic summer researching and photographing a quarter-million Adelie Penguins. He slept in a tent in below-freezing temperatures, endured howling blizzards and spent his days watching penguins go about their business.

Strycker recounts his experiences on the coldest, windiest, driest, least populated, highest and most remote continent in his new book, “Among Penguins: A Bird Man in Antarctica.” The book will be available for purchase and signing at 6:30 p.m. and after the presentation.
