Guide Bios

David Lambeth is a semi-retired professor of biochemistry at the University of North Dakota, and has been birding since 1969.  He has birded extensively all across North Dakota and regularly offers birding identification classes in Grand Forks. For more than 20 years, he has compiled seasonal reports for eastern North Dakota for use by the editor of North American Birds, and he has written seasonal reports for the northern Great Plains for over a decade.  Dr. Lambeth will present on Friday.


Al Aufforth was a professor of ornithology and wildlife at Dakota College for more than 30 years.  He also worked as a game warden in Lampasas, TX.  He holds a Master's degree from North Dakota State University in Natural Resource Management; thesis:  Waterfowl Nesting Ecology on Islands at J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge.  Al's intimate knowledge of the J. Clark Salyer Refuge will be invaluable during our treks through the wetlands of that area.
