Birds of Trinidad and Tobago

October 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Ted recently returned from a birding and bird photography tour of Trinidad & Tobago led by the well-known birder and superb bird artist, Keith Hansen. Please join us for his photo-illustrated talk on the stunning diversity of birds and other wildlife that inhabit the Caribbean and Atlantic coasts and tropical rainforests of the mountains and coastal canyons. More than 400 species of birds have been observed in Trinidad & Tobago, and the group was able to find 213 speciesTed got photographs of 103 species. This show will also be accompanied with sound recordings of selected species. Ted will also address aspects of individual bird species including their taxonomy, natural history, and on-going efforts to conserve these tropical treasures. Ted Beedy has studied and photographed birds and other wildlife throughout the Sierra Nevada and California for more than 60 years. He earned his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of California, Davis in 1982. He recently co-authored a new book with Ed Pandolfino: Birds of the Sierra Neva: Their Natural History, Status, Distribution, that describes the natural histories of birds of the Sierra Nevada, the origins of their names, the habitats they prefer, how they communicate and interact with one another, their relative abundance, and where they occur within the region. Each species account features original illustrations by Keith Hansen. Ted has studied and photographed birds in all 50 states, and he has traveled widely in the tropics of Central America, South America, and Africa.
