No Boundaries for Birds: Saving Tropical Birds in the Roaring Fork Valley
“No Boundaries for Birds: Saving Tropical Birds in the Roaring Fork Valley”
Nic Korte, Grand Valley Audubon Society
Many of our most common summer species actually spend more of their lives in another country. Nic will compare and contrast tropical and native species of birds. He emphasizes population declines and the need for conservation here in the Roaring Fork Watershed, in the tropics, and on stopover locations along migration corridors.
Nic Korte, geochemist, birder, and forty-year resident of Grand Junction, serves as the Conservation Chairman for Grand Valley Audubon. He leads the Western Screech-Owl project, engaging hundreds of Grand Valley citizens. He has documented sightings of more than 2000 bird species.
