Premier Leelanau County birder, Brian Allen will present a program about his second birding trip to Peru.  In the Spring of 2010 he was invited to Peru on a trip sponsored by Kolibri Expeditions to explore the feasibility of doing ecotourism in the Satipo Valley in the east central region of the Andes Mountains.  Brian says that this program will show some of the stunning scenery and some of the scariest roads for birding he has ever experienced!  He will take us to some of the last retreats of the Black-spectacled Brush Finch, the endemic Pardusco, and the gorgeous Golden-backed and Yellow-scarfed Tanagers.  Program begins at 10:00 am at the Habitat Discovery Center for SBTH, 5020 N. Putnam Rd., Omena, MI.  Call 231.271.3738 with questions.
