Sahul – A Paradise for Birds-Zoom Presentation 1/5/22

from Santa Clara Valley Audubon

On January 5, Bay Area Bird Photographers is delighted to welcome back our good friend Bob Lewis. Bob has presented to our group several times over the years — always enthralling us with his vast knowledge and lovely photos. This time Bob will cover some new territory when he presents: “Sahul – A Paradise for Birds”.

Bob writes:
“Australia and New Guinea are part of the Australian geological plate, or Sahul.  After a brief visit to O’Reilly’s, a wonderful jungle lodge near Brisbane, Australia, we’ll fly to Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea.  Our route in PNG will take us from the lowlands in the south of the island to the highlands on the western border, and then on to Mount Hagen, a 12,000’ extinct volcano.  New Guinea has 708 species of birds and 5 endemic families and is home to most species of spectacular Birds of Paradise and fascinating Bowerbirds.  We’ll discuss a bit of geological history, a bit of taxonomy, and look at examples of many of PNG’s 70 bird families.”

Date: Wednesday, Jan 5  Time: 7:30 PM
