Description:
Take a break from winter and join wildlife ecologist and photographer, John Winnie Jr. for an hour of exotic birds, wildlife and wild places. Take a virtual tour of Galapagos National Park above and below water, then head into Ecuador's Andean Highlands, a region known worldwide for its outstanding birding and bird photography opportunities. Some species we'll encounter in the Galapagos include: Galapagos tortoise, iguana, green sea turtle, finch, mockingbird, hawk, American Flamingo, Sally lightfoot crab, Blue-footed booby, and penguin. In the Andean Highlands we'll see tanagers, trogons, barbets, toucanettes, and over two dozen species of hummingbird. John Winnie Jr. is an award winning wildlife and landscape photographer. He authored High Life, Animals of the Alpine World, and was co-photographer for the book, The Rockies: Canada's Magnificent Wilderness. His work, including photos from many of the places his Holbrook tours will be visiting, can be seen at: http://www.johnwinniejr.com. John is also a conservation ecologist and Associate Teaching Professor in the Ecology Department at Montana State University in Bozeman. His conservation work and research have taken him from the remote Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan to Tajikistan to the wilds of the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.
