2018 Thursday Birding Presentations
April 26–Birding the Dominican Republic, Herb Wilson, Colby College.
In January, Herb and Bets joined six other birders on a Rockjumpers tour to the Dominican Republic, targeting the 31 species of birds that are endemic to the Dominican Republic and Haiti (collectively, the island of Hispaniola). Three families of birds are only found on Hispaniola and two other families of birds there are restricted to the Greater Antilles. The talk will center on the endemic species but a few of our avian friends in Maine will pop up from time to time. Come hear how they did on their quest to see all of the endemic species.
Presentations coordinated by Howard Lake and Margaret Viens
