BIRDING THE FOUR SEASONS OF MONTANA

 

October 14th, 7 pm, at Hope Lutheran Church

 

Join us October 14th at 7 pm as Ed Harper takes us through Montana’s varied seasons, sharing with us the great diversity of birds he has managed to photograph over many years of intensive coverage.  Whether it is a majestic Gyrfalcon in winter or an Upland Sandpiper in summer, you will find a myriad of images that are not only pleasing to the eye but are also very informative.  

 

Ed Harper's interest in birds goes back to his early childhood while growing up on a ranch south of Livingston, Montana.  Following graduation from Montana State and subsequent graduate school at the University of Wyoming, Ed engaged in a career in education as a college math teacher.  With his passion for birding, he also taught a variety of classes in field ornithology. An experienced world traveler, Ed Harper has traveled to all the continents in search of birds. Presently he serves on the board of Western Field Ornithologists.

 

An avid photographer, Ed has photographed over 2000 species of birds, with many of his photos found in books and periodicals. In North America alone, he has photographed over 750 species of birds.  Starting out as a tour leader for the Massachusetts Audubon Society in 1980, Ed now operates Sandpiper Journeys with his wife, Susan Scott.  Together they have conducted many birding and natural history tours throughout the world.
