Nature photographer will discuss birds of Maine and Utah

Birder and amateur nature photographer Brian Willson hikes the hills with Captain Jack.

Camden — Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Camden Public Library will co-host an online Zoom presentation, “Birds of Midcoast Maine and Utah’s Wasatch Range with Brian Willson” at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 13.

In his years of near-daily hikes to the summit of Beech Hill Preserve with his good dog Captain Jack, avid birder and amateur nature photographer Brian Willson ended up with thousands of photos of wild Maine birds. A couple of years ago, on something of a lark, Willson moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, where his routine hikes with Jack have become quite a bit steeper. By now he’s got a pretty good photo portfolio of western species. Willson’s virtual slide show will be followed by Q & A, comparing and contrasting the landscapes and wildlife of Maine’s Midcoast and Utah’s Wasatch Range.

While Willson and Jack agree that Utah’s high desert has a special allure, chances are they might end up back in coastal Maine someday.
