Posted10/12/2021 11:36 AM

Join the DuPage Birding Club for their October meeting featuring a program by Denis Kania and Joe Suchecki on the wonders and joys of international birding.

"Where in the World are the Birds" will be 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, on Zoom.


Even if you have never felt the urge to venture beyond our own borders, you may find yourself dreaming about some of the exotic species and destinations that they will cover in this presentation on exploring birding around the world. They will give everyone information and tips on what you need to know about exploring the world of birds through international birding adventures.

Kania started his international travels with a family/birding trip to Costa Rica in 1994 and has completed about 40 trips to 27 countries. He is a founding member and past president of the DuPage Birding Club. When not on the road, Kania teaches bird classes at the Morton Arboretum which he enjoys very much. Having to stay put due to the pandemic, he has devoted his energy to creating YouTube videos which reside on the DuPage Birding Club Education Channel. There are currently over 60 tutorials in the library where Kania shares his birding knowledge.

Suchecki has been birding for over 40 years, and has traveled all over North America to find new birds. He is a regular contributor to the club's Members Night presentations but is perhaps best known for his long-time volunteer work and bird monitoring at Springbrook Prairie in Naperville. In 2000, he joined Kania on a trip to Ecuador in 2000 and became hooked on international birding. He has since visited 15 countries, and is approaching 4,000 birds on his international life list. He is also a longtime member and past club president.
