A Birding and Wildlife Adventure at the End of the World
with Ron Davis
Early in 2019 Ron and Lee Davis traveled due south from Maine to Patagonia at the southern tip of South America. There, they boarded a small ship that took them to Cape Horn and through the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel, after which they drove to Tierra del Fuego, Sierra Baguales and Torres del Paine to observe and photograph birds and other wildlife under a backdrop of spectacular peaks and glaciers. This illustrated talk will provide you with a vicarious experience of birding this remote and wild place at the end of the world.
