Baltimore Bird Club.
Speaker: Matt Felperin.
Matt Felperin is a D.C. area local, raised in Takoma Park, MD, and the Roving Naturalist with NOVA Parks, the regional park system of Northern Virginia. In January 2022, Matt was lucky enough to be gifted a spot for a guided birding tour of Puerto Rico. Due to the island’s diligent COVID protocols and its status as a U.S. territory, it was a perfect place to travel to during the pandemic. Because of the island’s small size, there is a lot of ground that can be covered in a week’s time. The group was able to observe all ~17 endemic birds on the island in addition to several other “lifers” for Matt. In this presentation, Matt will share vivid, high-resolution photographs of wildlife and scenery he encountered, in addition to tips on how to bird this island paradise on your own!
