The Winter Wings Festival is excited to announce that Noah Strycker will be attending the Festival with Leica Sport Optics and will be available to talk with the public about his recently completed Big Year in 2015.  He just finished travelling through 41 countries and recording 6,042 species of birds in a single calendar year—surpassing the previous record by more than 1,500 species.  That figure represents almost 60 percent of the known bird species on earth.


Noah’s blog, “Birding Without Borders,” chronicled his seven continent adventure, from his first stop in Antarctica to his last birding day in India.  The blog, species list, and supporting material can be found at:

Having just turned 30, Strycker has authored two books: “Among Penguins” and “The Thing With Feathers.” Leica Sport Optics invites Festival attendees to stop by their vendor booth during vending hours on Feb. 13th and 14th to meet Noah, get your book signed, discuss his favorite binoculars and talk to him about his really Big Year!

We can almost predict Noah will become the world’s most successful professional birder without ever having to lead a single field trip.  However, his endorsements will never quit match those of a Super Bowl quarterback.
