 Join birding expert Steve Shunk for a look at the birds you're most likely to find in Central Oregon and right in your own backyard. Shunk is a hopeless woodpecker fanatic based in Central Oregon's Woodpecker Wonderland, where 11 woodpecker species breed each year (half the extant woodpeckers in North America!). After several years of field studies and extensive woodpecker research, Steve wrote his first book, the "Peterson Reference Guide to Woodpeckers of North America."

Shunk lives in Bend, but he spends much of the year traveling and writing as the associate editor for the Nature Travel Network. He also runs a successful tour company, Paradise Birding, for which he leads birding and natural history tours across the western hemisphere. Shunk regularly delivers presentations for state ornithological societies, bird festivals, and local bird and nature clubs.
