Did you know there are 56 species of warblers in North America? Our warblers are some of the most beautiful birds of the world, but their beautiful colors often blind birders to many of their most important identification points. This lecture discusses very important but often overlooked ID points to make warblering more enjoyable!
Tom Stephenson has been birding since he was a kid under the tutelage of Dr. Arthur Allen. His articles and photographs appear in many publications including Birding, Birdwatcher’s Digest, Handbook of the Birds, and Handbook of the Mammals of the World. He has lectured and guided across the US and Asia, where he trained guides for the government of Bhutan. He has donated recordings of Eastern Himalayan rarities to Cornell’s Macaulay Library. As a musician, he worked with several Grammy and Academy Award winners and his clients included the Grateful Dead, Phil Collins, and the FBI.
Co-author Scott Whittle has 20 years of experience as a professional photographer and educator. He has an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, is a fellow of the MacDowell Colony, and held the New York State Big Year record. He lives in Cape May where he leads workshops and pursues his passion for birds and photography.
Tom and Scott both served on Zeiss’s digiscoping team for the World Series of Birding, and in 2011 the team won the Cape Island Cup.
