Birdwatching in Brazil

Have you ever considered venturing to another country with the specific goal of seeing the wildlife of the region?

Come to the library on Monday, September 9, and discover some of Brazil’s spectacular birds.  Dr. Roger Boyd, Director of Baker University Natural Areas and Professor Emeritus of Biology at Baker University, will speak about his recent trip to experience the unique ecosystem of the Southeast Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil.  Find out if any of the birds inhabiting this region migrate through the Central Flyway and to Kansas, what you can expect to see on a trip like this one, and what time of year you should go.  Dr. Boyd will also share photos from his excursion.

This event is co-sponsored by the Topeka Audubon Society and begins at 7:00 p.m. in Marvin Auditorium 101C.  See you there!
