Tri-Moraine Audubon Society presents Tom Hissong: A World of Birds – Tuesday, November 6, 2018, 7:30 p.m. at 4240 Campus Dr, Lima, OH 45804
Birds are one of the earth’s most fascinating groups of animals. Scientists believe that there are nearly 10,000 species living throughout the world. Each species of bird is unique in its shape, color, behavior and life history. For nearly 45 years Tom Hissong, retired education manager and naturalist at the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm near Dayton, Ohio, has held a deep fascination and passion for the world of birds. Tom began watching birds that came to his feeders during the winter. While in junior high school Tom joined many Dayton Audubon Society field trips and had members take him “under their wing” to teach him how to identify Ohio’s birds. Tom’s passion led him to teach a spring ornithology class for adults in the Dayton area and to lead many exciting trips. In ‘A World of Birds,’ Tom will present a fascinating program about his experiences with his top 25 favorite birds. Tom has visited exciting places in Ohio, Michigan, South Florida and the Everglades, Australia, Peru, Kenya, Costa Rica, Galapagos Islands, Utah and Alaska. He will share stories and colorful photographs of the birds that have inspired him. This event is free and open to the public.
