Our speaker for October will be Stephen Lorenz; his presentation will be Cincloides to Penguins: Birding Central and Southern Chile. Stephan Lorenz has travelled and birded in every corner of North America from the Aleutians to the Dry Tortugas, from Newfoundland to Baja, and south to the Darien. He has also spent considerable time in South America, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia, and Europe. He has published over thirty articles on natural history, bird identification, and travel. When not traveling or birding, he teaches biology at San Jacinto College. He recently spent three months guiding in the Brazilian Amazon.

Due to the unusual geography of Chile, 2,600 miles in length and average 110 miles width, a visit requires quite a bit of travel to cover the country, but efficient and cost effective internal flights make for an enjoyable trip. Join this photographic tour from the balmy matorral around Santiago, to the gray bays of Chiloe, through the icy headlands of Tierra del Fuego. This presentation will focus on traveling and birding in central and southern Chile, highlighting the hotspots, giving detailed information on endemics and specialties, and touching briefly on logistics.
