Aiken Monthly Meeting May 2023 | The Birds of Central Panama and Darien Lowlands

May 17, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for our monthly meeting this May as we travel to Panama (through photos) with John Bruder!

Experience the incredible avian birds diversity of the lowlands of central Panama, the foothills of western Panama, and the remote stretches of eastern Panama as John and Risë bird for 21 days at the three exceptional Canopy Family signature lodges.  From sunrise on the observation deck of the Canopy Tower, to the lush cloud forests at the Canopy Lodge, and on to beautiful sunsets in eastern Panama at the Canopy Camp & Darién Lowlands, you will be immersed in this amazing birding trip.

John Bruder has been birding with his wife Risë Foster-Bruder since 1982, most recently
in the Pikes Peak region for the past 20 years. John has been fortunate enough to have
birded throughout Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia, and has
supported and lead trips for the Pike’s Peak Birding and Nature Festival since its
inception in 2015. John’s passion for birding was sparked by the sighting of a Eurasian
Hoopoe on the border of Iraq in 1990 and has grown ever since. He continues actively
birding with local birding groups and giving presentations on international birding.

This will be an in-person meeting (and broadcast on Zoom) held at the Colorado Parks & Wildlife Office located at 4255 Sinton Road 80907. The classroom entrance is on the back (east side) of the building. The main door will be locked.
