March 26, Naturalist and Other Wonders of South India
Eva Durance & Merle Kindred

In March of 2008, Eva Durance visited Merle Kindred in India and together they set off on two weeks of birding and cultural exploration in the four southern states of India. They saw nearly 160 bird species as they travelled by bus, train, plane, private car, and auto-rickshaw and stayed at a variety of eco-lodges as well as private homes. At the SONC meeting in March, they’ll present a sampling of the birds they viewed and the adventures they experienced.
