2020 FESTIVAL’S FEATURED GUESTS

Alvaro Jaramillo

Alvaro Jaramillo, author of the Birds of Chile, leads international birding tours, as well as pelagic trips in central California. He was trained in ecology and evolution with an interest in bird behavior, and research forays introduced him to the riches of the Neotropics, where he has traveled extensively. Alvaro was recently granted the Eisenmann Medal by the Linnaean Society of New York—awarded for excellence in ornithology.

Tom Stephenson

Tom has been birding since he was a kid under the tutelage of Dr. Arthur Allen of Cornell University. His articles and photographs are in museums and numerous publications including Birding, Birdwatcher’s Digest, and Handbook of the Birds. He has lectured and guided groups in the US as well as Asia, and has participated in many competitive big day birding events. His latest book, The Warbler Guide, is published by Princeton University Press.
