Mid-Coast Audubon Board member and local bird expert and author Don Reimer will present a Zoom pictorial portrait recounting his monitoring of a turkey vulture pair raising their chicks from egg through fledged independence. The talk, set for Thursday, Oct. 15 at 6 p.m., will trace detailed weekly progress at the nest site throughout the 2019 summer nesting season, with updates from 2020. The discussion is a free online presentation hosted by the Camden Public Library. To register for the event, please email Julia Pierce (jpierce@librarycamden.org) to request the Zoom login information.

Maine’s turkey vulture population has expanded immensely since the state’s first nesting pair was discovered in the Camden Hills in 1982. As part of the Maine Bird Atlas update project, Reimer, who has been documenting nesting birds in Maine for the last three years, is a lifelong birder and photographer who lives in Warren. He has led field excursions for local environmental organizations and the American Birding Association National Convention. He is a board member of the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in Rockland, and has participated in many citizen science projects. He recently published a compilation of his columns and photographs titled “See Anything Good?” which is available at http://donreimerbirder.com/.
