Take an informative plunge into the fascinating world of waterfowl without getting wet! Ventures Birding expert Simon Thompson helps us distinguish one duck from another during this winter season, the best for viewing waterfowl in the mountains. Many of the birds seen in the region should be in full color in anticipation of the upcoming breeding season. Always engaging, Simon gives an overview of species, their biology, calls and colorful characteristics.


Originally from Suffolk, England, Simon Thompson has lived in North Carolina for over 20 years. Prior to moving to the US he lived in Lebanon, Kenya, Yemen, and Ghana, where his interest in birds and natural history began. In addition to traveling extensively in the United States, Simon spent six months in China studying the crane and bird of prey migration as a member of the British "China Crane Watch" expedition. As owner and operator of Ventures Birding Tours, Simon has led many birding trips all over the world.
