2017 Birding Presentations

April 27, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the Viles Arboretum (153 Hospital Street, Augusta). Louis Bevier: “Spring migration: overview and ID tips (warblers and more)What is the pace of bird migration through Maine? Which birds show up when, and where were they during our winter? What is bird migration like around the world and how did it evolve? These are some questions that will be covered in the talk. Then, let’s dig into how to identify the birds that we see. Warblers, shorebirds, swallows, flycatchers, and hawks—these and other groups of birds have some tough ID problems. Let’s work on some of them together.
