Third Annual Robert Taylor Memorial Bird Blitz

Third Annual Robert Taylor Memorial Bird Blitz

Outdoor Activities: 

Event Date: 

Sat, May 26th

Trip Rating: 

NOVICE

Participation is open to all, from backyard birder to Big Day enthusiast. The idea is to enjoy birds at your own pace and submit a list of your sightings, plus area(s) covered, to Rudolf Koes (rkoes@mymts.net) after the event. No registration is necessary. Results will be reported on manitobabirds after the event, as well as on the Nature Manitoba website. Robert will be with us in spirit.

Robert Taylor was a prominent birder and nature photographer, who inspired many Manitobans to go out and enjoy the great outdoors. Although he grew up in Toronto, he spent most of his adult life in Manitoba. Here he became especially well-known for his photographs of owls and of the Churchill region. He collaborated with Robert Nero, illustrating The Great Gray Owl: Phantom of the Northern Forest, but also produced his own photo-essay on this enigmatic bird, The Great Gray Owl: On Silent Wings. Add to that several self-published books on Churchill and the remainder of the province. Many of these books were perennial bestsellers. Besides conducting workshops in Northern Manitoba, he led annual photography/nature tours to Kenya, in which numerous Nature Manitoba members participated and which provided them with wonderful memories. 
Last but not least, he was famous (or was that notorious?) for his sense of humour and his puns.
Robert left us too early, but by participating in the annual birding blitz, we keep his memory alive.
