York County Audubon is pleased to host Nick Lund who will present a program on the birds of Maine. This program will be held in-person in the Mather Auditorium at the Wells Reserve, and will also be available for viewing via Zoom.
Maine is a top destination for birders, as it's known for the wonderful species that are regularly found here, as well as a good number of rarities that frequently drop by. One of those most familiar with this world is Nick Lund, who’s well known to birders throughout Maine and far beyond its borders. In this program, “All the Best Birds of Maine,” Nick will take us on a whirlwind tour of as many of Maine’s “best” birds as he can squeeze into an hour of entertaining facts and anecdotes.
Nick is the author of the American Birding Association’s newly released ABA Field Guide to the Birds of Maine. He’s been well known for years as the man beyond the popular birding blog known as “The Birdist.” His birding and nature writing has appeared in Audubon magazine, Slate.com, the Washington Post, NationalGeographic.com, the Maine Sportsman, Down East magazine, Popular Science and others. A Maine native, he’s a graduate of the UMO School of Law, and worked in Washington, D.C. on protecting our national parks, before (wisely) electing to return to Maine and join Maine Audubon as its Advocacy and Outreach Manager.
The in-person program at the Wells Reserve will also feature a “bird book sale.” Pat Moynahan, whom we honored with a memorial concert in June, donated her large collection of birding books to YCA, and we’ll be offering them at this meeting, with the proceeds being used to support YCA programs and projects, and the Maine Young Birders Club.
