Many will remember Bob Schamerhorn, our September Speaker, from his presentation for MBC a few years ago. That one focused on the astonishing variety of birds that have graced the backyard baths he so selflessly provides for them at his home in Richmond. A native of Lynchburg, he became intoxicated with birds and nature in general as a child, has been a longtime member of VSO, and only relocated to the state capital in 2006. He is a self-employed Graphic Artist and insists he is no “professional” nature photographer in the sense of making his living from that alone. Judge for yourself, however. There is nothing amateurish about the quality of his work and that will be obvious on September 8th. Please come see his newest program on the Wood Warblers we all so love. You may also enjoy visiting Bob’s website at iphotobirds.com.
The October Speaker will be Jennifer Ackerman. She will discuss her recent book THE GENIUS OF BIRDS.
As tradition dictates, you are invited to our Meet the Speaker pre-meeting dinner at Brick Oven Restaurant, 1966 Rio Hill Center, Charlottesville at 5:30pm.
