February Program: Birding in Colombia
February 21, 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Larry and Jennifer Schmahl share photos and stories from their nature trip to Central Colombia last June.
Colombia is famous for being the most bird-rich country on earth. While that’s impressive, so too, is its overall biodiversity which is eclipsed only by that of Brazil…which has the advantage of being seven times larger. The unique topography of the country – Pacific and Caribbean coasts, three Andean ranges, Amazonian rainforest, and llanos – supports a great number of bird species, including over 85 endemics and 100 near endemics.
Larry and Jennifer visited some of Central Colombia’s most diverse locations.
Check out the movie, The Birders, for a great introduction to their presentation.
The event is free and light refreshments will be served.
