Mid-Coast Audubon presents a program of stunning bird photographs by nature photographer Keith Carver. His photography program “Birds of Midcoast Maine…Mostly” will be at the Waldoboro Public Library Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. and again at the Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor on Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.

The program is co-sponsored by Mid-Coast Audubon, the Waldoboro Public Library and the Jackson Memorial Library and is free and open to the public. Donations are always welcome.

Carver is noted for his “up-close and personal” photographic style of birds from Canada to Florida and New Mexico, and especially in Midcoast Maine. His photographs provide a fascinating glimpse of the behavior and plumage of a wide range of birds, including inland, coastal and pelagic species. He will include photography of northern gannets in Quebec, alcids in the Gulf of Maine, osprey and loons on Damariscotta Lake, and a variety of shorebirds at Midcoast Maine salt marshes.

Carver, a retired professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Massachusetts, lives with his wife Donna in Hadley, Mass. and spends summers at their cottage on Damariscotta Lake where birds are plentiful.
