The latest articles
At the “Augsburger Allgemeine” German Newspaper

A couple of weeks ago a few of my Resplendent Quetzals images appeared at the Augsburger Allgemeine, in the Mensch & Tier section. Maybe you saw it in person if you live in the south of Germany.

It is a nice article about the history, behavior and of these magnificent birds and illustrated with two of my images.

It’s always nice to see my images put to good use. Tom it’s using my “Free to use for education” license for a poster in the annual Fellows Symposium at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama City for The rates of avian community development in forest canopy and understory.
Very interesting poster!
