The Sussex Bird Club | Birding in Northern Columbia, South America: a Photographic Travelogue

The Sussex Bird Club | Birding in Northern Columbia, South America: a Photographic Travelogue

Monthly meeting of The Sussex Bird Club.

Colombia is the birdiest country on earth, with more than 1,950 species (almost 20% of the world’s total). There are more species of birds in this country than in any other, and it is easy to see why. Colombia is tropical, yet it also has ample elevation changes due to the Andes, and it also has both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. In additon, Colombia comprises a vast portion of the Amazon and the Orinoquia region. Six adventurous birders from The Sussex Bird Club Lewes traveled with a guide to the Santa Marta and Perija mountains, as well as the Caribbean coast, on a 10-day search for birds in March 2019. The trip yielded over 400 species of birds, many mammals and reptiles, and a deep exploration of the indigenous culture of rural Columbia. Follow the group’s adventures along the BUMPY back roads to see not only amazingly beautiful birds but the breathtaking views the photographers were able to capture.

Rob and Carol Blye of Sussex Bird Club will present their photos and those of photographers John Hoyt, Sharon Lynn and Dan Schieman in a one-hour travelogue presentation. No registration required.

The Sussex Bird Club and the Lewes Public Library are partnering on the community-wide initiative Lewes Loves Books, a One Book One Community program. The Sussex Bird Club's primary objective is to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of wild birds through guided field trips and monthly meetings about various aspects of birding. Meetings are open to all and beginning birders are always welcome
