The PDF file (at the bottom of this page) outlines descriptions of the narrated slide programs Sam has to offer, all of which run about one hour in length. Each program emphasizes birds and other animals found in the particular location involved and also shows the various natural habitats, scenic beauty and history of the surrounding area. His passion for both birds and photography find equal avenues for expression in his travels, thus the programs reflect this dual fascination with the natural world. He tries to tailor each program to the specific interests of the organization to which it is being presented.


Presentation:  "Warblers of Eastern North America [digital]"

My newest program takes us on a journey through warbler land, with a close look at all 38 species of eastern wood warblers. We’ll explore life histories, migration routes, wintering grounds and breeding locations throughout the western hemisphere. This will be a fun and fascinating look at these jewels of the North American birding kingdom!


Presentation: "Eastern Canada Journey of Discovery"

Travel through New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador and Quebec on an epic journey ranging from cosmopolitan old Quebec City to the wilderness backroads of Labrador.


Presentation: "Trinidad & Tobago - Tropical Wonderment"

Travel with me to the island nation of Trinidad & Tobago (toh-bay-go), where a wide variety of tropical species flourish just off the coast of South America.  We journey first to the smaller, but very mountainous island of Tobago, searching out specialities like White-tailed Sabrewing, that live only here while we stay at the luxurious Cuffie River Lodge.  A short flight takes us back to Trinidad, home of the steel drum and hundreds of new species.  The highlight is Asa Wright Nature Centre, where birds abound and you never have to leave the veranda to enjoy the show!


Presentation: "Ecuador, Galapagos, Peru and Machu Picchu"

Experience the heights of Cotopaxi Volcano National Park in Ecuador's Andes Mountains; take a seven-day cruise through the Galapagos Islands to meet Charles Darwin's favorite creatures; travel south to the Peruvian Andes for a visit to the spectacular ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu on the 100th anniversary of its discovery by Yale's Hiram Bingham.


Presentation: "Tanzania, Africa - Birding and Wildlife in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and much, much more"

This brand new program follows my three week journey through one of the world's most exciting wildlife viewing ares - Northern Tanzania.  In addition to the numerous mammals for which Africa is famed, we encountered over 400 amazing bird species!  Leopards, lions, cheetahs, zebras, elephants, giraffes and adorable warthogs cross paths with bustards, bee-eaters, ostriches and secretary birds.  Join me in adventure as we travel across the vast plains of the Serengeti, deep into the heart of Eden-like Ngorongo Crater, through the grasslands of Tarangire National Park, high in the mountains and along the wide beaches of the Indian Ocean.
