Birds of the Russian Far East
By: Chris Collins
This talk will review the birds of this amazing, but little visited region covering the Sea of Okhotsk, Sakhalin Island and the Kamchatka Peninsula. Chris will talk about birds such as Tufted and Horned Puffins, Steller’s Sea-eagle and Siberian Rubythroat. He will also talk about some of the collaborative work undertaken between Birdlife International, Birds Russia and a New Zealand expedition company to locate populations of the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
