Bird Expert Flies Back To Humboldt


Like a homing pigeon, Tom Schulenberg is returning to one of his old roosts.  He got his bachelor's degree at Humboldt State University before flying off to other locales. 

Now Schulenberg works at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, where he manages taxonomy, making sure all the correct names--Latin and English--are used for birds that the lab tracks; he's also in charge of the website of neotropical birds. 

The return to Humboldt Bay comes as the keynote speaker for the Redwood Region Audubon Society's annual banquet later this month (February 29th).  Dr. Schulenberg and Redwood Audubon board member Harriet Hill are our guests.
