Peru Peregrinations

July 20, 2017
6:30 pm
Northbrae Community Church

Peru is a land of many habitats, from the dry Tumbas in the northwest and the high Andes mountains running down the center of the country, to the Amazonian forests and rivers in the east. During two trips, we had a chance to examine the avian inhabitants of each of these regions. We'll discuss evolution, speciation, and the impact of geological upheavals while focusing on hummingbirds, and then look at some other exotic bird families, from Tanagers and Ovenbirds to Hoatzins. Finally we'll finish with a brief look at amazing Machu Picchu. Bob trained as a chemist and worked for Chevron for 33 years. He's taught birding classes for over 25 years, and is past chair of Golden Gate Audubon's Adult Education Committee. His life list is over 4,700, and he loves to travel. Bob was honored with American Birding Association's Chandler Robbins Award for Education and Conservation in 2016 and GGAS's Paul Covel Award for Education in 2017. Berkeley programs are at the Northbrae Community Church, 941 The Alameda (between Solano and Marin), zip 94707.
