Lynn Barber to Speak November 1, 2007

Lynn Barber will tell us how she saw 522 bird species in 2005, creating a new Texas Big Year record! She will show pictures of some of the birds seen and the sites visited. During that year, she drove more than 90,000 miles from forest to canyons to grasslands and beaches in her quest to record as many birds as possible.


This Crimson-collared Grosbeak is one example of some of the rarer birds seen in 2005.
