01 Feb Member Meeting – Gary Lindquist
Add to Calendar
Gary A. Lindquist, DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) has been an avid bird watcher (before it was birding and birder) since 7th grade. He grew up in the hills of Arkansas during the 60’s before birding was cool.
Gary’s interests in birding are more than just identifying and listing the birds he sees. He tries to discover what makes each species or family of birds unique. He strives to portray their special adaptations and to depict the niche they fill through the photographs he takes.
Gary has been a member of the Tulare County Audubon Society for 25 years and was a field trip coordinator and co-leader for twelve of those years. He has been married to his wife, Marietta, since 1975. They have two grown children and 3 grandchildren. Gary graduated from the University of Missouri, School of Veterinary Medicine in 1975. He practiced small animal medicine in San Leandro and Visalia, California for forty years. He is now retired.
Gary loves wildlife photography and has a special interest in avian photography. He enjoys speaking and giving PowerPoint presentations to gardening clubs, social groups and Audubon societies. Other interests include pen and ink drawings and woodworking.
The presentation he has prepared for the Fresno Audubon Society will be on the creation of colors, structure, and functions of feathers.
The meeting will be held at UC Center, UC Center, 550 E Shaw Ave, Fresno, CA 93710.
