Who Was William Clark?

William Clark was born on August 1st, 1770. Clark’s fame stems from the great Lewis & Clark Expedition where, along with Meriwether Lewis, he voyaged across the western United States on assignment from President Thomas Jefferson.

Numerous books have been written about this duo and Lewis and Clark National Wildlife Refuge is named after the explorers.

In the birding world, Clark’s name comes up when referring to that mischievous nut-caching Corvid, Clark’s Nutcracker and Clark’s Grebe, often confused with Western Grebe.
