Does December have you dreaming of a tropical birding trip, or better yet, planning one in the near future? Join us on Monday for a colorful international birding experience right at home in Heron Hall with special guest Santiago Escruceria. Colombia has 20% of the bird species in the world or some 1957 known bird species. Despite widespread loss of birds being a prevalent news topic, there are still new bird species being discovered as recently as October of this year, such as Tororoi Bailador, a new species of Antpitta. Santiago will share with the group a collection of photos of birds that can be seen in the areas of the Western and Central Cordilleras of Colombia, as well as discuss bird conservation and politics of conservation in Colombia.
