Birding Paraguay

 

Sunday, October 22, 3:30 to 5:30 PM

 

In August, Adam Betuel, Atlanta Audubon Conservation Director, and Paul Smith, an authority on Paraguayan birds who is active in scientific research, conservation, and tour leading, led a group of intrepid birders on a birding adventure to Paraguay. During the 14-day adventure, the group visited the wet and dry Chaco, Cerrado, and Atlantic Forest as well as a trip to the famous Iguazu Falls in Argentina.

 

Enduring bumpy roads and a few “unplanned” incidents, the group saw 320 species of birds along the way, including, the Greater Rhea, White-winged Nightjar, Spot-billed Toucanet, Black-bodied Woodpecker, and Quebracho-crested Tinamou, to name just a few.

 

Adam will share photos of birds and tales of their adventures during his presentation and show us the amazing bird diversity of this often overlooked country. Additionally, Adam will announce the dates and location of our next international birding trip.
