Presented by Santiago M. Escruceria

Join us for a colorful international birding experience right from your home! Colombia has 20% of the bird species in the world—some 1,957 known species. Environmental educator, birding guide, photographer and fellow Auduboner Santiago Escruceria will share his beautiful photos and discuss geographical, ecological, and political insights on birding in Colombia.

Santiago M. Escruceria is a Colombian-born American citizen residing in California for the past 41 years. He has taught environmental education in Spanish and English for the past 30 years, 21 of those with the Mono Lake Committee. At Mono Lake he manages the Committee’s Outdoor Education Center program for Los Angeles youth and adults, and for student groups from all over California. Santiago is an avid birder and bird photographer, leading birding adventures in Colombia during the winter ( and walks for school groups in the Mono Basin during the rest of the year. He is currently President of the Eastern Sierra Audubon Chapter.
