Atlanta Bird Fest: Opening Keynote Address Featuring Noah Strycker
Join us to celebrate the opening of Atlanta Bird Fest 2019!
In 2015, Noah Strycker of Oregon became the first human to see more than half of the planet’s bird species in a single, year-long birding trip around the world. Birding on seven continents and carrying only a pack on his back, Strycker and local birders counted more than 6,000 species, including Adelie Penguins in Antarctica, a Harpy Eagle in Brazil, a Spoon-billed Sandpiper in Thailand, and a Green-breasted Pitta in Uganda. He shared the adventure in real time on his daily blog (audubon.org/noah), and now he reveals the inside story. This humorous and inspiring presentation on Strycker’s epic world tour will leave you with a new appreciation for the birds and birders of the world.
