The Nuttall Ornithological Club, the oldest ornithological club in America, founded in 1873 by Willliam Brewster in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is delighted to invite BBC members to a special meeting, “Peter Kaestner and his Search for 10,000 Species of Birds in the World.” The event will take place May 14 at 7 p.m. in the Talanian Hall of the Holy Trinity Armenian Church of Greater Boston located at 145 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA. The event is free, but registration is requested.

Peter grew up with a strong interest in birds, attended Cornell University, spent two years in Zaire with the Peace Corps, and then became a career diplomat, being assigned to 20 different countries where he got to see a great many birds. He will share with us his adventures, special birds, and his unique perspective on conserving birds around the world.
