Rustom Jamadar: “Birds of India – Western and Southern Regions”
September 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for our interesting monthly program and refreshments. There is a social period beginning at 6:30 pm with the meeting and program getting under way promptly at 7:00 pm.
During January & February of this year, PAS member Rustom Jamadar, traveled to India to visit friends and family. While there he birded in Western India, including the Sasan-Gir National Park, the sanctuary for the last remaining Asiatic Lions. He also birded in Southern India, including the Nilgiri Hills. He found the birding there to be very rewarding (nearly 200 species), so he will share photos from those trips and will be happy to answer questions about birding in India.
Rustom grew up in India (although, we’re not sure he has ever grown up). After completing his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering, he came to the USA for graduate studies. While at the University of Texas at Arlington, he was introduced to birding, and was fortunate to accompany the Biology class on birding trips to the Rio Grande Valley. He has maintained an interest in birds and birding ever since. He has been a member of the National Audubon Society and a Life Member of the Bombay Natural History Society for over 35 years. Over the past 5 years, Rustom has joined the local chapters – San Diego, Palomar, and Buena Vista and participates in the weekend field trips. He has also birded in Trinidad, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador. When on business trips, Rustom pens accounts of his travel experiences and shares them with family and friends.
