Ken Wilson, owner of Talon Tours, will present a program on the "Birds of Guyana" at the Florence Douglas Senior Center at 333 Amador Street in Vallejo on Tuesday, September 13 at 7 p.m.
The country of Guyana is located on the northeast shoulder of South America. The diversity of habitats within Guyana supports just over 800 species of birds from 72 different families, including Blood-colored Woodpecker, Guiana Cock-of-the-Rock, Toco Toucan, Green Aracari, Crimson Fruit Crow, Caica Parrot, Red-shouldered Macaw, Crimson-hooded Manakin and Finsch’s Euphonia. Due to its history and location, much of Guyana remains in a pristine natural state that is comprised of coastal waters, mangroves, marshes, savannas and mountains with the remaining 80% in tropical rainforest.
A native New Zealander, Ken has been leading nature and birdwatching tours worldwide since 1995 through his company Talon Tours. His passion for photography began in the early 1970’s and continues to grow, and we'll see many of his beautiful photos during this presentation.
This program is sponsored by Napa-Solano Audubon and is free and open to the public.
