Field trip guide and photographer, Kevin Gusé will present a travelogue of his 2017 trip to Colombia at the February members’ meeting.
Colombia was essentially off limits to birders for many years due to security issues stemming from political unrest. It is now relatively safe and more accessible to birders than ever before. With a varied landscape resulting in a rich avifauna, Colombia boasts the largest species list of any country in the world (over 1900 species recorded to date)! Supporting almost 20% of the world’s bird species, Colombia is now a “must visit” for birders.
The meeting will take place at the Davis Senior Center (646 A St, Davis, CA 95616). The program starts at 7:30 p.m., but everyone is invited for refreshments and conversation at 7:00.
