Keynote Speaker: Kenn Kaufman
Kenn Kaufman is recognized as one of the world’s most renowned bird experts and a highly sought-after public speaker.
A lifelong naturalist, Kenn Kaufman did not really focus on birds until the age of six, but since then he has tried to make up for lost time, pursuing birds in all fifty states and on all seven continents. Kenn is a field editor for Audubon magazine, and writes regular columns for both Bird Watcher’s Digest and Birder’s World magazines.
Most of his energy currently goes into book projects, including his own field guide series, Kaufman Field Guides, published by Houghton Mifflin Company of Boston. This series now includes volumes on North American birds, butterflies, mammals, insects, a field guide to advanced birding, and a regional guide to the nature of New England. In spring 2005, the series was expanded to include the first North American bird guide to be published in Spanish. Kenn’s other books include Lives of North American Birds, Kingbird Highway, and Flights Against the Sunset.
He has also written scores of magazine articles and columns on identification topics, and has taught identification workshops all over the United States and Canada. To learn more about the Kaufman Field Guide series visit www.kaufmanfieldguides.com.
