Birders at Bosque del Apache. Photo by Mouser Williams
Learn more about wildlife this weekend birding at the Bosque del Apache with two expert birders and excellent teachers, David Yeamans and Mouser Williams. The Pajarito Environmental Education Center is sponsoring the program.
Yeamans has watched birds most of his life starting in Los Alamos many years ago, and in the last five years, he has been a birder of the type he calls “semi-pro.”
Yeamans is active in Audubon bird counts, bird banding, field trips, and local birding activities. He has been an outdoor educator all his life, especially as an Outward Bound instructor and BSA scout leader. He’s eager to share the lessons that observing nature brings to us.
Mouser Williams organized the 2015 Los Alamos Christmas Bird Count. He is an avid birder and wildlife photographer. He has lived in Los Alamos for 13 years. When not enjoying the outdoors, he moonlights as an electrical engineer at LANL.
