We are happy to welcome back Tom Stephenson from Brooklyn, New York.
Tom is a great speaker and photographer. He has a keen ability
birding by ear. Tom has written numerous articles for American
Birding Association. He has also conducted workshops for LA Audubon
on digiscoping and Photoshop. Please join us as Tom gives a talk on
his recent journey photographing birds in Bhutan:
Bhutan: Birding the last Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom
Nestled in the Eastern Himalayas, and virtually untouched by the
technologies and industries that have shaped the rest of the world,
Bhutan remains a unique and pristine refuge for birds and birders. No
where else in the world can you drive for days and days through
uninterrupted primary forests which protect some of the world�s most
beautiful bird species. This is a country where the first roads were
built in the 1960s, TV still is not a common fixture, and the King�s
focus is on Gross National Happiness!
Come see Ibisbill, Rufous-necked Hornbill, the brilliant Fire-tailed
Myzornis, Golden Babbler, and the spectacular Satyr Tragopan along
with Green-tailed Sunbirds and Pygmy Wren Babblers. And we won�t
leave out stunning shots of prayer wheels, temples, Dzongs, the rare
Golden Langur; and, of course, the Himalayas.
Come on over and share your bird reports and chat with your local
President and Programs Chair for Los Angeles Audubon
