Camden — Tom Arter, of Midcoast Maine Audubon, will speak about "Owls: Life after Dark in the Avian World" at the Camden Public Library Thursday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m.

Shrouded in mystery, owls are unique and have fascinated people of all ages. Most people do not realize that there are 10 species of owls here in Maine. This program is an introduction to the owls of Maine and explores their many adaptations that allow them to survive here.

Arter is a past president of the Seacoast Chapter of New Hampshire Audubon, worked as a staff Naturalist at N.H. Audubon, and went on to teach ornithology at University of New Hampshire. He currently serves on the board of the Damariscotta River Association.

“I have always loved the night and feel very comfortable in the dark," Arter said. "I share this comfort with many species of owls and have enjoyed getting to know them.”
