    Birding in Northern India

    John Hershey

    In this program John will share experiences and photos he took on a birding tour and safari in northern India in March 2019. Some of the beautiful birds that will be illustrated include Indian Peafowl, Red Junglefowl, Ruddy Shelduck, Painted Stork, Crested Serpent Eagle, Great Hornbill, Chestnut-headed Bee-eater, Rufous Treepie, Indian Paradise-flycatcher, Indian Roller, and many more. In addition, he will show safari photos of some of India’s endangered and charismatic mammals including Bengal Tiger, Asian Elephant, and Indian Rhinoceros. There should also be time for a few photos pertaining to the rich culture of India as well as its people.

    John is a former Secretary and Director for HMBC. He has been leading HMBC field trips to Vischer Ferry Preserve, Peebles Island, and Fox Hill Road for many years. Birding has led him to travel throughout North America and more recently to Ecuador, Costa Rica, Panama, and India. He has presented a number of HMBC programs on some of his favorite birding trips. He is semi-retired and works part time as a psychologist in private practice.

    Birding Ghana

    West Africa is a regional avian endemism hot-spot, and Ghana is a favored country in the region for organized birding tours. The country spans a diverse range of habitats from coastal wetlands to Afro-tropical rainforest to wet and dry savannas, all in a package roughly the size of Minnesota. This travelogue program will cover the gamut, highlighting birds, mammals, and cultural aspects seen during a 3-week tour of the country.

    Gregg Recer is a former HMBC president. He and his wife, Cathy Graichen, have been HMBC members for 30+ years and over that time have become avid world birders.
