World Birder Gives Talk

Recently New Zealander Carol 'Kiwi' Donovan gave a slide show presentation at Lake Bluff Sanctuary. She highlighted her travels around the world in search of seeing at least one member from all 204 worldwide bird families. She's accomplished this goal and now has moved on to visiting every national park in the United States. Her talk focused on unusual or hard to find birds and also on the logistics of world travel. She gave plenty of 'insider' tips on traveling alone and on a shoestring budget. Twenty-six very interested visitors attended the 2 hour presentation. -Rich/Lake Bluff
