Sept 10, 2014      ‘Borneo: More Than Just Birds’ presented by Marge Barret

Many birders visit Borneo to see the Bornean Bristlehead, an endemic bird in a monotypic family.   But there are other attractions in Borneo besides its wealth of birds.   One of the seven species of great apes resides only in Borneo.  The world’s largest pitcher plant grows in Borneo.  Birdwings are among the butterflies that breed in Borneo.


Oct 8, 2014   London, UK Birding presented by Sandy Sorkin


Birding in London reveals a number of beautiful and interesting birds.  Outwardly, many of the birds appear to be identical to those in the United States, but are actually only related species.  All of the pictures in this presentation are from trips to England over the last two years.  Most of the birds will be those seen during daily walks along the Serpentine and through Hyde Park.  There will also be images of species found on the periphery of the city along with a rarity or two.





The Eurasian Robin looks nothing like              The Gray Heron looks almost identical

the one in the Mary Poppins Movie.                 to our Great Blue Heron.
