The Birds of Vermont Museum is hosting an exciting program this Saturday.
Hank Kaestner will be presenting Birding in Kazakhstan on September 20th
at The Birds of Vermont Museum at 7:00 p.m.
Hank Kaestner has been a bird watcher for 53 years. He and his brother,
Peter, recently had the opportunity to travel to Kazakhstan, and Hank is
bringing his slide show to the Birds of Vermont Museum in Huntington. His
slide show chronicles their adventures in searching out the 20
or so species of "specialty birds" of this former Soviet Republic. Hank
will also include information about the geography, history, and culture of
this exotic central Asian birding destination. Hank Kaestner was director
of spice procurement for McCormick and Company for 33 years. His work and
his passion for birds guided him around the world. In his travels he has
seen over 6,800 species of birds. For more information about Hank’s
adventures see his profile in March/April 2007 Audubon Magazine or see
The Museum will open at 7:00 p.m. Join us for beverages and snacks in
front of the viewing window before the slide show. The slide show will
start at 7:30. There is a suggested donation of $10.
