On Thursday, March 12, at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, Otter Creek Audubon held the last of our three Cabin Fever Lecture series presentations for 2020. ‘Why Ghana?’ presented by world-traveling birder, Hank Kaestner. Ghana is a seldom visited West African nation which is rich in history, culture and, of course, birds, many of which are range restricted to western Africa. From the rain forests in the south, to the sub-Saharan desert in the north, colorful birds abound. Hank spent two weeks chasing “lifers” there, seeing almost 300 species of birds, one third of which were new for his life list. If you missed this presentation it can viewed online here thanks to the production facilities of Middlebury Community Television.
