Join the Washtenaw Audubon Society as Jacco Gelderloos offers an exploration of the bird life of the coastal Yucatan peninsula and the birding opportunities it offers.
Jacco Gelderloos was born and raised in the Netherlands, where his father and older brother got him infected with the birding bug. After moving to the United States in the 1990s, Jacco was fortunate enough to come into contact with the local birding community. Like many other birders new to the Ann Arbor area, he was readily brought into the fold of the Washtenaw Wingnuts, as well as the Washtenaw Audubon Society, and has enjoyed every last minute of it (for better or worse). As a result, Jacco has served as WAS Field Trip coordinator and is the current Ann Arbor CBC compiler. Over the years, Jacco has had the opportunity to bird the Netherlands (and a few surrounding countries), the US, Peru, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Mexico, and is hoping to both expand and intensify his birding horizons in the years to come.
