Chasing Warblers with Bob Gress.

In the United States and Canada, there are over 50 species of regular occurring members of the Wood-Warblers family, Parulidae. Many are brightly colored and searching for them and seeing them for the first time is both challenging and memorable. They’re small, active and most occupy the highest parts of trees or the densest parts of the understory. Their variety of colors, behaviors, and habitats make them favorites for many birdwatchers. Warblers are also some of the most challenging birds to photograph!

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 is hard at work on the text, while Bob is finishing up the photos for The Guide to Kansas Birds and Birding Hot Spots, Expanded Edition.  Watch for the publication of this book in 2024.

Programs will not be live-streamed this year, but you can see recordings after the live program on our Facebook page or on Youtube.
