Ted recently returned from a birding and bird photography tour of Panama. Please join us for his photo-illustrated talk on the stunning diversity of birds and other wildlife that inhabit the Panama Canal and the tropical rainforests, mountains and coastal canyons surrounding it. Their group was able to find 256 species over a 10-day period, and Ted got photographs of 122 species. Ted will also address aspects of individual bird species including their taxonomy, natural history, and on-going efforts to conserve these tropical treasures.
Ted Beedy has studied and photographed birds in all 50 states, and he has traveled widely in the tropics of Central America, South America, and Africa. He has a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of California, Davis. He recently co-authored a book with Ed Pandolfino: Birds of the Sierra Nevada: Their Natural History, Status, and Distribution.
