|Title:||"Birdwatching in Maine" with Derek Lovitch|
|Location:||Rockport Opera House|
|Description:||With nearly 450 species of birds recorded, Maine offers an abundance of birding opportunities for people of all levels of interest and experience. From mountaintop to barrier beach, from “The County” and the Crown of Maine to the southwest coastal plain, a wide variety of birds can be found.
Join Derek Lovitch, author of Birdwatching in Maine and How to be a Better Birder, as he shares stories and tips on birdwatching in Maine.
Derek’s lifelong passion for birding has inspired his careers as a biologist, author, tour guide, and business owner. He has served as the Tools of the Trade department editor for Birding Magazine, and his writing has appeared in many other birding magazines. He and his wife, Jeannette, own and operate Freeport Wild Bird Supply, an independent bird-feeding and birding specialty shop that serves as a vehicle for promoting birding and bird conservation.
