This is Pilchuck Audubon Society’s October Program Meeting presented by Blair Bernson. He has been birding the U.S. and the world for almost 50 years and has travelled to many bird-rich areas around the U.S. and the world. He has birded on his own, with fellow birders, private guides, numerous tour companies, large and small. His birding trips have been to 16 countries on every continent except Antarctica. In this program, Blair shares photos, experiences stories, and some analyses that are applicable to long-time travelers or first timers, and for experts or beginning birders, and for birders interested in big tours or focused guided trips.
