“Capturing the Lives
of Beringian Birds” by Gerrit Vyn
presentation of the 2014 Alaska Bird
Conference, “Capturing the Lives
of Beringian Birds”,
may be viewed on-line at any time on
www.360north.org. Gerrit Vyn had fascinating
video of rare birds and bird calls.
Gerrit Vyn also had some very serious
news about our birds that need to stopover in
the Yellow Sea to complete their migrations.
China has filled 65% of the tidal wetlands since
1950. They are using the 'flat' lands to build
new cities. They got the technology from the US
and the Netherlands.
