Chile – Birds, Mammals and Landscapes of Patagonia by Bob Gress.
Patagonia refers to the southern tip of South America and includes parts of both Argentina and Chile. In November of 2023 a group of 10 Kansans explored the Chile portion of Patagonia in search of birds, mammals, and landscapes of the southern tip of South America. Wichita Audubon members on this trip included Jim and Patty Marlett, Kevin and Laura Groeneweg, Tom Ewert, Rod Wedel and Mary and Bob Gress. Join us as we explore Chiloé Island, Straits of Magellan, Tierra del Fuego and Torres del Paine National Park. Explore, discover and enjoy!
Bob Gress is the former director of the Great Plains Nature Center in Wichita and co-founder of www.BirdsInFocus.com. Bob has photographed wildlife in wild places throughout North American, Central America, South America, New Zealand and Africa. Over 4,900 of his wildlife photos have been published and are seen in a variety of magazines and in more than seventy books. Currently, Pete Janzen and Bob are finishing The Guide to Kansas Birds and Birding Hot Spots, Expanded Edition. Watch for the publication of this book in 2024.
