Stephen Shunk - Peterson Reference Guide to Woodpeckers of North America

Stephen Shunk at Sunriver Nature Center

Tuesday November 12 at 6 PM

Stephen Shunk has been involved with birds for literally decades.  In 1992 he began teaching birding classes, was a co-founder of the East Cascade Bird Conservancy – now the East Cascades Audubon Society, and he co-founded the Oregon Birding Trails program.  The photography in his book, Peterson Reference Guide to Woodpeckers of North America is gorgeous.  His slide show will be a delight for bird watchers, particularly as Sunriver has quite a few active woodpeckers.  If you are interested in birds, this is definitely a program you should attend. 

Stephen Shunk also founded Paradise Birding with tours going all over the Americas, Europe, and Asia.  After watching the slide show, you might be inspired to sign up for one of his tours. Check out the destinations at his website:    There are tours in Oregon, Asia, Italy, Peru, and a variety of other destinations coming up in 2020.  It sounds like his company concentrates on small groups and comfort.
