Birds of Panama

Birds of Panama by Clyde Stephens

Beginning in 1959, Clyde and Phyllis Stephens lived in The Republic of Panama. Clyde worked for Chiquita Banana as an entomologist and focused on insects, but they enjoyed all the flora and fauna of their tropical home. Imagine the delight of living and birding where there is the possibility of seeing a harpy eagle or hearing a three-wattled bellbird.

Clyde will be our speaker for next Tuesday’s  Oklawaha Valley Audubon’s program, “Birds of Panama”, at Trout Lake Nature Center. You will enjoy the splendor of Panama’s birds with photos by Alex Chester and others who have joined Clyde on one of his tropical tours.  And, there are sure to be just a few “Clyde stories” to go with the birds, like the one about the “bat falcon”, to give the presentation an adventurous and humorous side.  Written by naturalist Lavon Silvernell.

Come join us at 2:30 pm for refreshments, to meet new birding friends, to learn about up-coming events, and at 3:00 pm for Clyde and “The Birds of Panama”.
