he Florida Keys Audubon Society will kick off it’s 2017 Speaker Series on Wednesday, January 3 at 6:30 p.m. with a talk by Mark Hedden at the Key West Garden Club. 

Hedden is a writer, photographer, and birdwatching guide. He is also the executive director of FKAS. Hedden will give a talk called “Colombia: The Birdiest Place On Earth.” Hedden first visited Colombia in 2016, and will lead a trip there for FKAS in March of 2017.

“Colombia was off the grid for Americans for a long time, but it has been stable and safe for close to a decade,” said Hedden.

“It’s a country the size of France with about 2,000 species of birds in it. That’s two-and-a-half times more than all of the U.S. And it is an incredibly beautiful and under-visited place,” Hedden said.

FKAS talks are free and open to the public.
