“Geology, Landscapes and the Biogeography of the Birds of Kenya,” with James Bradley
Friday Nov 17, 6:45 to 8:30 PM, Thompson hall at UPS, room 175, suggested expenses for speaker $10.
The Advanced Birding Club (ABC) and the Slater Museum at the University of Puget Sound present James Bradley. James led the fantastic safari that included ABC’ers Bruce LaBar, Kay and Ed Pullen in November 2016, which they still talk about! See Ed’s report: http://edpullen.countybirder.com/2016/12/10/kenya-trip-report/. James will also mention a bit about the culture of Kenya and what it’s like from the participant point-of-view to go on safari with him.
James lived in Kenya for 12 years in the 1980’s and 1990’s, developing a lifelong interest in the rich birdlife of the region from an early age. James serves on the Kenya Bird Atlas technical committee, contributes regularly to the regional ornithological journal Scopus, and oversees the review of records for eBird Kenya. He holds an MSc in Conservation Biology, and when not at home in British Columbia, he is likely to be in the field in Kenya, recording bird sounds, exploring an unknown mountain top or searching for a long forgotten subspecies!
His knowledge of birds in Kenya is extensive, and his enthusiasm for sharing what he knows is contagious.
Between work, parenting, and birding, James is currently completing an up-to-date text on the birds of Nairobi.
Join us for an unforgettable trip to Africa!
