Bird photography on Two Sides of a Continent
November 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
South America’s Pacific and Atlantic/Ecuador and Brazil presented by Dean Carrier
Ecuador and Brazil lie predominantly just south of the Equator. Ecuador, on the Pacific, is nearly the size of Nevada while Brazil, on the Atlantic, is slightly larger than the entire continental United States. Yet, there are 1623 species of birds in Ecuador and 1799 in Brazil. However, due to its size and variety of habitats, Brazil has 231 endemics while Ecuador only has 7 (not including the Galapagos). This presentation will focus on images of the variations of bird species and habitats found in both countries taken on two photo tours.
