Kansans are fortunate to have front row seats on the Central Flyway. The annual migration of hundreds of bird species funnels through Kansas every spring and fall. In addition to farmlands and native prairies are two unique wetlands, Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. Few have taken better advantage of these wildlife watching areas than Bob Gress. Bobís immense knowledge of wildlife biology, decades of experience in wildlife photography, patience to get the right photo in all weather conditions, and skilled story-telling make him one of the most entertaining wildlife presenters in our region.
