John Fitzpatrick, Director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, will speak about the spectacular avifauna of Peru and tell the story behind the creation of this remarkable book. He will also discuss its significance for international conservation efforts.

Attend this free public event to see why Audubon Magazine called Birds of Peru the culmination of an incredible amount of fieldworkand a collection of some of the best avian artists in the country.

Robert Kirk, Executive Editor, Biological Sciences and Natural History of Princeton Press, added, Conceived in the early 1970s by the legendary Ted Parker and John ONeill, the project has at last come to fruition. The book promises to be one of the best field guides to any region or country published to date.
