Sacajawea Audubon November Program
7:00 PM
Hope Lutheran Church
Come learn about some of the rarest, most endangered birds on Earth, in this presentation that will span countries from Guatemala to Brazil. We will spend some time talking about not only the natural history and discovery of these wonderful species, but also about the ecology of their region and what makes them so special. From Horned Guan to Blue-eyed Ground Dove, Forrest Rowland will relate his personal experiences with these birds, and discuss the most immediate concerns and threats to the well-being of these particular species and the important habitats that they are the icons for.

Forrest Rowland took his first trip to the Neotropics at the tender age of 9 and this has blossomed into a lifelong love affair with the region’s birds and wildlife. Forrest has a technical education in Genetics but has since spent many years in the field, honing his birding skills throughout the Americas. He is now primary tour leader in South America for Rockjumper Birding Tours.

Forrest’s first extended stint to South America involved several weeks at Tiputini Biological Research Station, in the Upper Amazonian region of Ecuador. This encouraged him to ship all his earthly belongings to Quito, where he became a resident after realizing that he wanted to dedicate his career and life to bird guiding. Since this move in 2003, Forrest has guided over three dozen tours, and participated in numerous scientific excursions, in South America, including working with ProAves and other local conservation entities in Colombia. Forrest lives in Livingston, Montana.
