Sequim Branch Library
Wednesday, May 9 at 6pm
Port Angeles Main Library
Noah Strycker, writer, photographer, and adventurer, will talk about his recent epic quest to see more than half of the planet’s bird species in a single year. Birding on seven continents and carrying only a small backpack, Strycker saw more than 6,000 species, including Chinstrap Penguins in Antarctica, a Harpy Eagle in Brazil, and a long-lost owl in New Guinea.
In this presentation, Strycker will cover the funniest, weirdest, and most inspiring stories about both birds and the people he encountered along the way. His most recent book, Birding Without Borders: An Obsession, a Quest, and the Biggest Year in the World, is the personal account of his epic quest.
Books will be available for purchase through Port Book and News at both events.
