Camden Public Library and Mid-Coast Audubon is hosting “An Overview of Maine’s Birds” by Don Reimer on Thursday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Camden Public Library, 55 Main Street.

Maine has roughly 230 species of breeding birds, and it is possible to see 400 different species at various times of year. Some birds are year-round residents while others arrive
annually from the tropics to nest in the state’s marshes, uplands and boreal forest regions. From raptors to songbirds and shorebirds, the talk will examine Don Reimer’s original photos of local birdlife. Tips on field identification, migration strategies and general habitat
requirements will be included in this brief overview of Maine’s bird populations. Some of the unexpected species that may occur at odd seasons of the year will also be included.

Mid-Coast Audubon is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to promote long term responsible use of natural resources through an informed membership, education and community awareness. MCAS offers free monthly birding trips and educational programs as well as maintaining four public preserves. Every third Thursday of the month, MCAS sponsors an evening program at the Camden Public Library.
