E-M:/ September meeting

Detroit Audubon Society presents

The Best of African, Asian and Malagasy Birding


Join us at our monthly meeting and enjoy an armchair  trip to some exotic birding places.  For 45 minutes, David Shackelford, an avid naturalist as well as an accomplished bird artist and photographer, will be showing us the best of birding in Africa, Asia and Madagascar in pictures, maps and video clips, as well highlights of additional activities that accompany birding such as Egyptian culture, gorilla trekking in Uganda, South African big game, Madagascar lemurs, India tigers, and the culture of Bhutan. The experience level of Rockjumper Birding Tours is unmatched, with over 3,500 species recorded in the region during the course of their tours.

About our guest: A native Texan, David's fascination with ecology quickly led to a lifelong passion of observing birds and their behavior. He has guided and traveled throughout Central and South America where he specialized in the birds of the Amazon and Andes, including a year guiding at the famous Sacha Lodge in Ecuador. He has additional experience in Australia, Europe and Asia, but his attention turned toward the allure of Africa where he now resides as a full-time guide for Rockjumper Birding Tours.  He now guides tours primarily throughout Asia, Africa and Madagascar with consistent and dependable handling of tour logistics backed by a business degree in International Management, and an expert understanding of the birds, their vocalizations, and wildlife behavior.
