Free Presentation ''The Birds of Colombia'' at A.D. Barnes Park Nature Center


(MIAMI, January 8, 2014) - Miami-Dade Parks EcoAdventures, in collaboration with Colombia Wild Ecotours, will provide a free presentation “The Birds of Colombia” at A.D. Barnes Park Nature Center on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014 at 6:30 pm. The presentation of Colombia’s birds will take you from coastal eco-systems to subalpine forests, featuring some of Colombia’s prime forest reserves and its birds. 

Despite its relatively small size, Colombia is the second most biologically diverse country on Earth, home to about 10 percent of the world's species. This biodiversity results from Colombia's varied ecosystems. Not surprisingly, it supports the highest number of Birds in the world...1903 and counting!
