October 2015 Speaker

Our October, 2015 speaker will be Mr. Sam Fried of Flights of Fancy, LLC.  Sam moved to the Titusville area just over a year ago from the northeast although his active travel schedule must make it hard to remember where home is.  He has had over 1000 photographs and 56 feature articles published in field guides, books, newspapers and magazines worldwide, including National Audubon, National Geographic, Birder's World, Bird Watcher's Digest, Birding and Living Bird Quarterly and various golf magazines.  He wrote several chapters of the Insight Guides book on birding in North America, published by The Discovery Channel and has made around 500 photo presentations to a wide variety of organizations.  He is a Past President of Hartford Audubon Society and has a North American Life List of 751 bird species seen and 733 photographed.  He is the founder of Flights of Fancy Adventures, LLC, a birding, photography and natural history travel company offering small group, low cost, high quality trips throughout the Americas and now to Africa.

The title of his presentation is Owls of North America.  Undoubtedly the most mysterious and least seen family of birds in North America, owls hold our fascination, as they have for thousands of years. Learn about all 19 species that inhabit our continent and listen to their eerie calls.

Refreshments will be served.
