Birding South Bruce with Todd Pepper

leave a comment »

As the Huron Fringe Birding Festival approaches I’ll try to give you a bit more information on some of the excellent and knowledgeable leaders that take their time out to help us learn about and appreciate birding as well as other interesting topics in nature. This blog post will highlight the achievements of Todd Pepper as he became the first Canadian member of the American Birding Association to see a representative of each of the world’s 234 living avian families. That’s quite a feat in that it requires a LOT of travel and even more determination to achieve this goal.

Here are a few of the links to some of the articles written after Todd achieved his goal.

This give you an idea as to the qualifications of Todd and the good fortune you would have to be on the hike he will be leading at the 20th Huron Fringe Birding Festival. If there’s something you want to know about birds, he’s a person to ask. It’s difficult for me to imagine just how much knowledge Todd has stored away and I’m sure he’d love to share as much as he can of his love of birds with fellow birders. Here’s an article that was written after he achieved his world record.

Todd will be leading an all day hike titled “Birding South Bruce” so sign up before the spots are all filled up and let Todd tell you about his birding adventures as he shows you the birds from the area.
