During this age of COVID, many of you have cancelled your birding trip to Surinam or Borneo. So maybe it is a good time to revisit some information on resident birds and our winter visitors. Mac’s presentation is a program to help refresh the minds of experienced birders, as well as provide a general introduction to those more curious about who’s hopping around in their backyard. During the course of the talk, Mac will include tips on bird identification, feeders, feathers, and a few humorous anecdotes of his almost 50 years of “birding”.
John “Mac” McCormick is a retired high school biology teacher of 37 years, and has been an avid birder since the 1970s. He is the former co-director of the San Francisco State University (SFSU) Sierra Nevada Field Station Bird Banding Program. Mac has literally handled thousands of birds during the seventeen summers he spent banding. Since his retirement in 2000, he has traveled the world, bird watching in such exotic places such as the Peruvian Amazon Basin, Brazil, Central America, Australia, and Japan.
