Birds of Cuba (Potluck Dinner)

Free

OPAS Program for September (Potluck Dinner starts at 6 pm, Meeting and Program begins at 7 pm).

Presented by Dr. Jim Karr, Professor Emeritus of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences, University of Washington

A noted expert on tropical birds and a lifelong teacher and naturalist, Jim spent many years studying forest birds in Central and South America, Africa, South Asia, and New Guinea. Besides knowing birds, he is an aquatic ecologist who created the widely-used Index of Biological Integrity, determining the health of rivers and streams by assessing fish and aquatic invertebrate populations. Even more illustrious, Jim received this year’s OPAS Conservation Award.

Within the past year, Jim traveled to Cuba to view the spectacular birds of the largest Caribbean Island. From beaches to forests to mountains, Cuba has many endemic species and subspecies, including several distinctive songbirds and the smallest bird in the world, the Bee Hummingbird. Come hear about Jim’s adventurous travels to Cuba and searching for its unique birds.
