     In 2013, Andy, his wife Roberta, and his friend Kurt Steinwascher
contracted with Richard Foster, resident ornithologist in Taiwan, to lead a
two-week bird tour of the island.  They visited many parks and preserves,
travelling by van from Taipei to Tainan, crossing the Chungyang Shan
Mountains up to the highest paved pass, then returning via the coast to
Taipei.  This talk presents many photos of the beautiful birds of Taiwan.

      Andy Greller taught botany, ecology, and plant geography at Queens
College for 30 years, retiring from teaching in 1998.  He continues to
conduct research, publish articles, and edit books on local and world
vegetation.  He leads local field trips for plants and gives occasional
lectures to natural history groups.  Andy is Vice-President of the Long
Island Botanical Society, past-President of the Torrey Botanical Society,
and is a member of many other scientific societies, including the Queens
County Bird Club.
