March 18th Program 7:30 PM

"THE EXQUISITE BIRDS OF ECUADOR"

Presenter: Bob Mumford

Seven Mountains Audubon’s program on Wednesday, March 18th will feature professional nature photographer and avid birder Bob Mumford speaking about "The Exquisite Birds of Ecuador."

Bob Mumford has traveled to many exotic locations including 26 times to Churchill, Manitoba, the most famous location for polar bears. He has traveled to Tanzania and Kenya twice each, photographing all the big cats and the other well-known mammals and “tons of birds.” He has experienced about all the challenges and discomforts one might expect in the field -- short of a snake bite -- yet remains in awe of the magical treasures that we call birds.

Recently Mumford has concentrated on one country, Ecuador, which boasts of 1600 bird species (he has made sixteen trips in the last seven years.). He will share his passion for our avian friends in this presentation which showcases some of the most interesting and colorful birds in Ecuador. Also included will be some other natural history photos to provide context for the habitats occupied by the birds, critters such as the Giant Otter, various monkeys and reptiles and the elusive Agouti. These images, along with several hundred others, have been included in his coffee table book by the same title as this presentation: "The Exquisite Birds of Ecuador." Copies of the book will be available for sale after the presentation.

This program is free and open to the public.

More info about our speaker (Notes from the Northern Virginia Bird Club meeting announcement): Bob Mumford’s presentation on “The Exquisite Birds of Ecuador” will include 150 bird photographs taken during 16 trips to Ecuador. Bob became a fanatic birder after retiring from the Navy. His North American list exceeds 760. Now he focuses on capturing wildlife and landscapes through photography. Bob is a fantastic photographer whose work has appeared in many publications, including National Wildlife Magazine, Birding, Birder’s World and Howard Youth’s book A Field Guide to the Natural World In Washington, D.C. Bob also authored Spring Comes to Washington. His recently published book "The Exquisite Birds of Ecuador" includes over 300 images of birds taken within the past 7 years. Bob visited approximately 60 sites including the Napo River and the Pacific coast of Ecuador. His web site naturalimgs.com contains 80 of the images included in his book.
