Birding with a Clean Slate: Rediscovering Birding on the Other Side of the World
Many birders can relate to the excitement of finding a new bird, but what about birding in a completely new country? How does one identify a completely unfamiliar population of birds without being able to rely on old tricks and hints? Join Brenda Miller as she recounts her first birding adventure in her secondary home of Taiwan, and the joys of rediscovering birding with a clean slate.
Brenda Miller is from Kent, Washington, where she was introduced to birding by identifying songbirds with her father in their backyard. She is now a self-professed bird nerd who is always excited to share her love of birding with others! Brenda spent her undergrad days at the University of Puget Sound where she got her B.S. in Biology with a double major in Music, then went on to work as an educator for the Slater Museum of Natural History and later joined the board of directors for Tahoma Audubon Society. Brenda is pursuing a Master of Science in Environmental Education, as well as a Certificate of Nonprofit Management at Southern Oregon University. When she is not studying or birding, she is often cuddling with her ball python Cosmo or performing as a concert pianist.
This meeting will be held via Zoom – similar to the September and October programs. Stay tuned for instructions.
