Alma Lowry became interested in birding 30 years ago after her children left the nest. Since then, she has expanded her circle of friends and knowledge of birds on outings with the Brooks Bird Club and Bibbee Nature Club. Vacations have been primarily focused on birds and Alma has added life birds at destinations around the United States and internationally. She has participated in the New River Birding & Nature Festival, first as a participant and then as a local guide for more than ten years. Alma is excited to share her joy of birding with fellow enthusiasts.
