Birding Guatemala’s Highlands
with Jason Fidorra

Jason Fidorra presents photos and stories about the birds and birding in Guatemala from a trip in February 2020. The highlands of Guatemala are a UNESCO awarded colorful haven for several birds that are, or soon will be, on every birder’s most wanted list: Pink-headed warbler, Resplendent Quetzal, Azure-rumped Tanager, and the near-mythical unicorn, the Horned Guan, top the list as some of Central Americas finest avian attractions.

Please join us virtually on Zoom with the link above. A recording of the program will also be available later on the YVAS website at www.yakimaaudubon.org .
