Keynote Speaker Paul J. Baicich
Paul J. Baicich has been an active birder since his early teens in New York City. A is a former employee of the American Birding Association(1991-2003). Paul’s concerns include an abiding interest in bird conservation and studies in the breeding biology of North American birds. In this last regard, he has co-authored (with the late Colin Harrison) A Guide to the Nests, Eggs, and Nestlings of North American Birds (1997). Paul also has co-led a number of birding tours and workshops to Alaska. These Alaska destinations include the Aleutians, the Pribilofs, the Seward Peninsula, and St. Lawrence Island.
Paul’s Keynote address will be The Dozen Most Important Things You Can Do For Birds, Bird Conservation, and Birding
Among his many other activities, he worked for the National Wildlife Refuge System on a consultant basis on issues of popular birding and parallel refuge receptiveness. In addition, Paul co-edits (with Wayne Petersen) the popular monthly Birding Community E-bulletin. His latest work, a history of bird feeding in the US, co-authored with Margaret Barker and Carrol Henderson, will appear in 2015. Visit his website at www.greatbirdingprojects.com
