M. Kate West Staff Writer Plumas Audubon will host a meeting Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m. in the Almanor Recre- ation Center, 450 Meadow- brook Loop in Chester. "Those attending will be in for a special treat as Preston Mutinda and Gerald Corsi use slides and stories to present 'On Safari in Kenya,'" said spokesperson Terry Williams. The presentation will high- light many species of birds and wildlife in Africa. "So, come admire many of Kenya's 1,100-plus species of birds, to include: mousebirds, bee-eaters, rollers, go-away birds, bustards and hornbills -- birds as varied as the tiny 4- inch malachite kingfisher to the 8-foot ostrich," added Williams. She said magnificent mam- mals such as the big cats, ele- phants and herbivores would also be discussed. About the presenters Preston Mutinda, owner of Preston's Birding and Wildlife Safaris, has been guiding cus- tom birding, wildlife and photographic safaris in Kenya for more than 30 years. One of only 13 professional guides to have achieved Gold in the Kenya guide rating sys- tem, he is known as being one of the best birders in Kenya, and is lnowledgeable about every other aspect of his coun- try from tribal customs to his- tory and to all the wildlife visi- tors might encounter on their , trip. He also gives back to his community, having construct- ed an environmental educa- tion center in his hometown outside Nairobi, aimed at helping local children learn about conservation and the wildlife that they so rarely have the opportunity to see for themselves. Mutinda's presentation on Kenya's birds and other wildlife will be illustrated by the professional photography of Gerald Corsi, a retired San- ta Rosa oral surgeon. Corsi has had the good for- tune to travel with Preston on several extended safaris, and will also provide some in- sights into Kenya travel gath- ered over innumerable photo- graphic trips that began back in 1970.
