Un poco acerca de nuestros guías

Ana González –Nací y crecí en el país con la mayor diversidad de aves del mundo, y mi amor por las aves combinado con una fascinación cada vez mayor por la migración me trajo a Canadá hace más de 10 años. Actualmente trabajo para la División de Investigación de Vida Silvestre del gobierno de Canadá. Estoy super emocionada de que descubramos juntos algunas de las especies de aves que, al igual que algunos de nosotros, pasan su vida entre Norte América y Latinoamérica.

Christopher Di Corrado – Soy un “nerd” de las aves, biólogo y guía de vida silvestre. Paso casi ocho meses del año trabajando para el Servicio de Vida Silvestre de Canadá realizando monitoreos de aves marinas en la costa de Columbia Británica. Cuando no estoy haciendo eso, soy guía en Ecuador o en la Antártida. Estaré muy contento de estar en tierra firme, ayudarlos a buscar pájaros, y hacer nuevos amigos. Crecí en Ontario, me mudé y viajé por Sudamérica donde aprendí español, ¡y todavía estoy aprendiendo! ¡Espero verlos y practicar español!

About your Bird Guides

Ana González – I was born and raised in the country with the highest diversity of birds in the world, and my love for birds combined with an ever-growing fascination for bird migration brought me to Canada over 10 years ago. I´m currently working for the Environment and Climate Change Canada Wildlife Research Division. I am super excited to discover with you some of the birds that, like some of us, spend their lives between North America and Latin America.

Christopher Di Corrado – I’m a bird-nerd, biologist, and wildlife guide presently spending nearly 8-months of the year working for the Canadian Wildlife Service conducting marine bird surveys off the coast of British Columbia. When I’m not doing that, I may be guiding in Ecuador or Antarctica! I’ll be very glad to be on solid ground to help search for birds with you and make new friends. I grew up in Ontario, and have moved around, and travelled through South America where I learned Spanish- and I’m still learning! I look forward to see you and practicing Spanish!

Birding with Me is a part of the Vancouver Bird Celebration and organized collaboratively by Stanley Park Ecology Society, Canadian Wildlife Service, Birds Canada, and the BC Bird Trail. Thank you so much to the Port of Vancouver for funding this series.
