October 28: Birdwatching Trips to South America – Peter Odekerken

28 October 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Long-tailed Sylph at Colobri do Sol, Colombia by Peter Odekerken

Peter Odekerken, a photographer and avid birdwatcher, has been fortunate to have visited Colombia and Brazil, two countries which have the most species of avifauna in the world. Colombia has the largest number of bird species, with Brazil coming in a close second. Peter also visited Argentina to see the largest breeding colony of parrots in the world. In this presentation, he will give some insight into the diversity of species as well as the relative ease to travel in South America. 

Peter primarily travels to various countries throughout the world to satisfy his addiction to the parrot family but all wildlife interests him, so if the chance arises to see a jaguar, then he doesn’t miss the opportunity. This presentation will highlight some species that were close to extinction but thanks to the work of the local communities and conservation organizations, some remarkable results have been achieved.

On October 28th, at the next Friday Forum, hear more about Peter’s birdwatching trips in South America and his discovery of the work that is being done to conserve these birds and other animals. Peter’s incredible photos should not be missed!

Everyone is welcome at the NPA Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available at 10-10.25am. Entry is $5 by “tap & go” at the door which includes morning tea/coffee. 

Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
