SDFO Meeting Tuesday Sept 18

Going south on Rosecrans St. in the Midway area of town, turn left on Roosevelt Rd. into Liberty Station and proceed a couple of blocks to Decatur. Parking is available on the street or in the adjacent parking lots.


Program: John Bruin will discuss “Birding in Indonesia: From Borneo to Papua.”


From mid-May to mid- June, John spent 5 weeks birding in Indonesia. He visited the islands of Java, Bali, Borneo and West Papua. In addition, he spent a couple of days in Singapore. Indonesia is home to more endemic species than any other country in the world. Birding in Indonesia can be challenging, due to the rustic and remote nature of roads and facilities. Many locations are rarely visited by other birders. John was fortunate to see some unique species, including Vogelkop Bower bird, Black- thighed Falconet, Javan Plover, Magnificent Bird of Paradise and many others. He will be presenting slides on some of the highlights of this trip.
