Lynn E. Barber is a patent attorney with a passion for birding.

 She has done several big years: a record-breaking Texas big year in 2005, an ABA big year in 2008 which she finished with 723 species, the third-best at the time, and an Alaska big year. She chronicled her ABA big year in her book Extreme Birder: One Woman’s Big Year. She is also the author of Birds in Trouble, which focuses on 42 bird species and what can be done to improve their situations. For her talk in this series, she will speak to us about her “Big Year Birding Adventures”, which will focus on quests and adventures from her Texas and Alaska big years, which will be covered in a forthcoming book. Now a resident of Alaska, we are fortunate to have her regale us here in Chicago!



The presentation is free and begins at 6:30 pm, preceded by a cash bar and light refreshments at 6:00 pm.
