Christopher Adler “12 Days in Borneo”
January 24, 2019 @ 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.
Christopher presents an overview of a recent guided birding trip to Sabah state, Malaysia, at the northern end of the island of Borneo. The island is a prize birding destination for a large number of endemic species, owing in part to Mt. Kinabalu, one of the highest mountains in Southeast Asia, and for a mix of Sundaic and mainland Indochinese species, and even a few Philippine species. With photos and audio recordings from the trip, Christopher’s presentation will include a wide variety of spectacular tropical species such as broadbills, hornbills and spiderhunters, as well as endemic mammals encountered such as elephants and primates.
Christopher Adler moved to San Diego in 1999 to join the faculty at the University of San Diego where he is now Professor of Music and affiliated faculty with the Asian Studies Program. He works as a composer and performer of contemporary chamber music, and researches and performs traditional musics from Thailand, Laos and Okinawa. He began birding in 2002 and has traveled extensively throughout Thailand and neighboring countries, appending birding to research trips whenever possible.
Mark your calendars, don’t miss this one!
