Bob and Cathy Andrini came to show all about the many species of birds in the Fox Valley. Visit their website by clicking on the link below. 

“We are former teachers whose lifelong passion is the outdoors and everything in it - especially birds. Most days you'll find us engaged in some manner of birding, whether it's teaching classes, leading bird walks, or out watching birds for our own enjoyment.

When others witnessed our passion for birding and our willingness and skill in sharing our knowledge, they suggested that we make birding presentations to their groups. So we did.”
