Bay Area Bird Photographers
Bay Area Bird Photographers (BABP) is a club founded by members of SCVAS. Programs are open to the public and feature an engaging presentation by a member or guest showcasing bird photography from around the world and close to home.
BABP is supported by SCVAS and sponsored by the Recreation-Open Space and Science Division of the City of Palo Alto. While BABP no longer requires yearly dues, we ask that you become a supporting member of SCVAS to continue your support of BABP.

"Exploring the Wildlife of Indonesia - In the footsteps of Alfred Wallace" with John Richardson
Wednesday, April 5th
Description: "My first in-depth view of Indonesia includes Sulawesi, Halmahera, Flores & Komodo, and Bali. All the islands are biological hotspots with extraordinary endemic fauna and flora found nowhere else. All the islands have parks, some with the coveted World Heritage Site distinction. Some of the parks are so remote the animals do not fear you and allow a careful approach with camera. Despite the beauty and remoteness of this part of the Earth, the human factor weighs heavily on its future."
"The Hummingbirds of Costa Rica and Ecuador" with Richard and Roberta Rhudy
Wednesday, May 3rd
Description: "We have been photographing birds and animals since about 2000. While we have gone to a number of places with beautiful birds, the hummingbirds of Costa Rica and Ecuador are some of the most beautiful. This presentation highlights the hummingbirds we photographed in Costa Rica (2015) together and a trip Richard took to Ecuador in 2016. We managed to photograph about a quarter of the hummingbirds in the two countries."
