Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Making the Most of the Birding Experience: A Guide to Holistic Birding

Join Lee Hoy, OM-D Pro Ambassador, owner of Big Bend Birding and Photo Tours, and Wildside Nature Tour Photography Workshop Leader, for a humorous, inspirational, and challenging presentation designed to help you transition your birding to a more holistic and enjoyable experience.

We will examine methods and mindsets designed to move you beyond simple bird identification and listing to expanding your views of both and developing a richer, deeper understanding of the birding experience. Lee has birded in 49 states, leads 15 to 20 Colima Warbler hikes a year, and worked on the PBS Nature Special “Big Bend: The Wild Frontier of Texas.” He leads international and domestic photography workshops with some of his favorite destinations being Yellowstone in Winter, Amazon Riverboat Cruise, Big Bend National Park, and Newfoundland. This presentation is sure to make you laugh, make you reconsider some of your current assumptions about birding, and possibly even shed a tear.
