The Dark Side of Birding – Presentation by Ralph “Doc” Olsen
Long-time CLCF member Mary Emory introduced Doc, a passionate birder and retired Colonel in the U.S. Army who served 34 years in the Army and National Guard. Doc was awarded the Paratrooper Badge and the Meritorious Service Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster. He is a retired pediatrician on the Honorary Staff of Children’s Hospital.
The practice of birding has changed greatly since the early 20th Century when “collecting” birds was done with a shotgun, not a pair of binoculars. Thankfully, we have come a long way in understanding the importance of living in balance with Nature and the other inhabitants of this precious planet.
