Local bird expert Don Reimer will lead a presentation about birding in winter in an online webinar presented by Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, Feb. 8 at noon.

Mainers typically consider winter as an off-season for birds. However, with 466 species officially recorded across the state, Maine winter birding opportunities abound. In this online talk, local birder and writer Don Reimer will give a pictorial overview of Maine’s hardy wintering raptors, waterfowl, and songbirds. In addition to species identity and behavior, the talk will touch on where to look for particular birds by their habitat. A brief question and answer period will follow the talk.

Reimer is a lifelong birder and photographer residing in Warren. A board member of the Midcoast Audubon Society, he has led field excursions for local environmental organizations and the American Birding Association National Convention. He is a board member of Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in Rockland.
