Our speakers for the November meeting will be Paul and Madeline McKneely. Their presentation is titled: "Birding in Bulgaria: Cross-roads between Europe and Asia". Paul McKneely began birding in 1973 after purchasing his first pair of binoculars as a freshman at Howard Payne University. He received a BS in zoology from Texas A&M and did graduate work in biology at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. He decided on a career change after using computers to gather data on his lizard research subjects. He is now into embedded electronic design and programming, robotic machine control and 3D animation. He began development on his Parallel Programming Language compiler tool chain in 1988 which is based on a text system that incorporates the character sets of the world's written languages (called Unicode). Paul introduced Madeline to birding in 1989. Madeline is a CPA with no formal education in the sciences, but she took to birding like a fish to water. She always loved to travel, so now they bird the world together. They have traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but most extensively to Latin America and Africa. They also share interests in military (mostly WWII) history (with tours to Guadalcanal and Vietnam) and paleontology. Paul and Madeline have been members of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology since 2006 and have enjoyed attending eight of their annual meetings.
