Birding Without Borders with Noah Strycker



In 2015, bird nerd Noah Strycker became the first human to see more than half of the planet's bird species in a single, year-long, round-the-world birding trip.  Anything could have happened, and a lot did!

He was scourged by blood-sucking leeches, suffered fevers and sleep-deprivation, survived airline snafus and car breakdowns, skirted war zones, and had the time of his life. 

Birding on seven continents and carrying only a pack on his back, Strycker enlisted the enthusiastic support of local birders to see more than 6,000 species!  He shared the adventure in real time on his daily blog ( and now he reveals the humorous and inspiring inside story.  

Noah's book Birding Without Borders: An Obsession, a Quest, and the Biggest Year in the World will be available for purchase, and he will be signing them before and after his presentation.
