"Eveaything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Tortugas- Especially Birds!" Speaker: Jeff Gordon Date: October 2,1995 Location: St. Philip's Methodist Church, 5501 Beechnut at Renwick Time: 7:00 p.m. Pre-meeting Learning Corner at 6:30 p.m.: Rob Thacker will discuss hawk identification. Jeff Gordon is the principle leader in Florida for Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT) and has visited the Tortugas each of the last six Springs. He has been interested in natural history since at least the age of four, when his response to the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" was, invariably, "A lepidopterist!" A trip to the Florida Everglades at age twelve sparked his interest in birds. Jeff has worked as an interpretive naturalist in Acadia and Yosemite national parks and at Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge. His travels with VENT have taken him from the cloud forest of northeastern Mexico to the tundra of the Northwest Territories. He lives in Austin with his wife Martha and their three dogs. The Tortugas, a federal bird reservation since 1908, are notable for their nesting tropical seabirds, migrant passerines and their track record for producing records. These low coral islands, visited by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513, he about 60 miles west of Key West, Florida. He called them Tortugas (Spanish for turtles), because of the many turtles in the nearby waters. Spain ceded the Tortugas to the U.S. in 1819 along with Florida. Jeff will cover the natural history of the Tortugas, especially birds, but will include information about coral reefs and the human historical use of the keys. You will find out how to visit the Tortugas, either on your own or with an organized tour.
