Program on May 9 – ​Birds of Peru


MAY​  9- ​Birds of Peru, ​​Richard Amable, Metro Parks of Butler County, Ohio and the Jacamar Club Peru

AMV - Richard AmablePeru’s bird diversity is remarkable rivaling that of Colombia and includes 1817 species that range from the high Andes to the Pacific Ocean coast and that are found in one of the World’s richest tropical forests and one of its driest desserts. This is a chance to hear Richard share his first-hand knowledge and passion for the natural history of Peru and his love affair with birds.

Richard is the founder and director of the Jacamar Club Peru which offers bird and natural history tours throughout Peru. Richard is an expert birder, bird guide, and conservationist. Richard lives between two worlds spending part of the year in Ohio where he works for Metro Parks of Butler County and the rest of his time in Peru. He serves on the board of the Audubon Society of Ohio. Richard grew up in Puerto Maldonado in southeastern Peru. When in the United States he lives with his wife Jennifer in Mason, Ohio. His curiosity and passion has fed his interest in both research and conservation almost always focused on birds.

Chapter Meetings are held the second Monday of the indicated months in the 2nd floor Community Room, Lebanon Citizens National Bank building, 30 Park Place West at 7:30 PM in uptown Oxford unless otherwise noted (n.b.). All meetings are open to the public.
