Strycker traveled 41 countries and all seven continents in 2015, setting a world record by seeing 6042 birds, more than half the birds on earth. His account of this journey is available in his new book Birding Without Borders. Plus, look for festival favorite Carrol Henderson during the 21st annual Festival of Birds. The festival kicks off Wednesday evening with a performance of "For the Birds" by Kevin Kling and Zeitgeist at the Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes. Kling's storytelling is combined with a series of musical pieces to celebrate birds!
