Audubon Dallas - monthly meeting and speaker

Presentation -
Victor Emanuel has traveled to all the continents and has led over 300 birding tours. In this talk he will discuss his ten favorite birding destinations and why he chose them.

Victor Emanuel started birding in Texas 61 years ago at the age of eight.  His travels have taken him to all the continents, with his areas of concentration being Texas, Arizona, Mexico, Panama, and Peru.  He is the founder and compiler for 50 years of the record-breaking Freeport Christmas Bird Count, and served a term as president of the Texas Ornithological Society.  Birds and natural history have been a major focus throughout his life. He derives great pleasure from seeing and hearing birds, and sharing with others these avian sights and sounds, both the common ones and the more unusual ones.  He initiated the first birding camps for young people, and considers that one of his greatest achievements.  Victor holds a B.A. in zoology and botany from the University of Texas and an M.A. in government from Harvard.  In 1993, he was the recipient of the Roger Tory Peterson Excellence in Birding Award, given by the Houston Audubon Society in recognition of a lifetime of dedication to careful observation, education, and addition to the body of avian knowledge. In 2004, he received the Roger Tory Peterson Award from the American Birding Association, and the Arthur A. Allen Award from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Victor is a member of the board of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, and the American Bird Conservancy.
