      Ralph T. Waterman Bird Club Meeting

      Birding in South Africa
      Take a trip to the southern hemisphere with South Africa native Debbie van Zyl and discover the feathered delights of South Africa. Learn about the world renowned Kruger National Park, famous for its raptors in the north all the way south to the majestic Cape where mountains and seas collide to create a picture-perfect backdrop for one of the world’s six floral kingdoms. This diverse habitat and concentration of birds at the end of their migratory path creates unique birding opportunities for those brave enough to look past the flashy colors and delve into the realm of Little Brown Jobs. Debbie will also talk about the differences between birding here in Dutchess and her old home-turf of Gauteng, South Africa.

      Speaker’s Bio:
      Debbie and her husband Jacques have been in the US for 4 years and they live with their two gorgeous dogs who have quite easily adjusted from a hot, dry life in Africa to happily playing in the snow. She serves on the board at Saw Mill River Audubon in Westchester and has been blessed to join them on many of their bi-annual trips all over the country for the past few years. She has been an avid birder for more than 25 years and enjoys all aspects of nature (except spiders!). She sometimes still struggles with the switch to the very different kind of birding here in the north east but is enjoying the thrill of chasing new lifers and county birds now that she lives in Dutchess County.
