Join Patrick Keenan of the Biodiversity Research Institute for a discussion of the long-term banding effort surveying breeding birds at Wells Reserve at Laudholm, initiated by June Ficker including similar work focused at River Point Bird Observatory in West Falmouth, ME. We will share methods and outcomes and some nice bird photos and stories. Feel free to bring your bag lunch to eat during the presentation.

Patrick Keenan is Outreach Director and Wildlife Biologist at Biodiversity Research Institute in Portland, Maine, where he has worked since 2008. For nearly 20 years he has worked as a field biologist and educator with a focus on bird banding, monitoring, and conservation. In 2011, he helped to establish a bird banding station at River Point Conservation Area in West Falmouth, Maine. Following in the spirit of June Ficker, Patrick feels great privilege to be involved in continuing the long-term bird banding effort at Wells Reserve at Laudholm.
