About Your Presenters:
Hugh directed the first Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas and edited the Atlas book, the “Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas”. He coordinates the Breeding Bird Survey in Colorado. He has served as President of Denver Audubon, Denver Field Ornithologists, and The Colorado Mountain Club. He acted as Regional Editor for American Birds 1972-1995. For the second Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas he volunteered as a Regional Coordinator. He wrote several Species Accounts for the second Atlas book, published last December.
Hugh wrote the 2008 Falcon guide, “Birding Colorado”, with Urling’s invaluable help. This involved a rigorous year-long regime of driving all over Colorado checking out bird-watching sites. Assistance from birdwatchers in different parts of the state meant that they received up-to-date local expertise.
Urling and Hugh have taught a beginning bird watching class twice a year since 1979 (except for a break during the kids’ Junior High School). Now offered by Denver Audubon (a/k/a Audubon Society of Greater Denver), it started as an Adult Education class at the University of Colorado-Denver. Both have volunteered for Audubon for years.
Urling chaired the Silent Auction at the ASGD annual dinner for more years than she cares to recount, as well as the Field Trips Committee. She volunteers with the ASGD Urban Ed program and the Lois Webster Fund (it supports research on Colorado birds).
Avid birdwatchers, they have posted over 9,000 checklists to the Cornell bird record site, eBird. These cover recent observations as well as historical ones to give the site a perspective on changes over the years to bird populations and distribution.
