Dana and Bob Fox travel the world to see wonderful birds in amazing habitats. Chile is a beautiful country with dramatic scenery, a joy to travel in, and filled with an array of outstanding birds. Join Dana and Bob as they explore three different regions of the country: Patagonia in the far south with its barren habitats; the verdant central region including a pelagic trip; and the deserts of the far north punctuated by waterholes and home to some of the only remaining relatives of the original inhabitants. You'll want to pack your bags and leave the next day!
In far northeastern NH, lies the richest wildlife area in all of the Granite State, Lake Umbagog. William Brewster, the paragon of 19th century field ornithologists, described it as “…like many a precious stone, has beauty and charm due to the effectiveness of its perfect setting ….”. The Umbagog region is still one of the wildest, most bird-rich, areas in northern New England. In this slide show, Bob Quinn of Merlin Enterprises Eco-tours will share the dramatic scenery of this remote area as well as talk about some of the fascinating changes in Umbagog’s bird life over the last 140 years. The focus of the program will be on the Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge and its efforts to protect this dazzling northern lake and the surrounding forests. This program is perfect for the wildlife enthusiast as well as those wanting to explore a little known corner of New England.
Kurk Dorsey, UNH Associate Professor of History, got to spend four months in Budapest, Hungary in the fall of 2011. With no car, no scope, and limited ability to communicate even in English, much less Magyar, he still managed to see some of the great birds of Central Europe (and not get lost or cause an international incident). You too can bird Hungary by rail, foot, and mooching.
