Three events about flying things and photography:
THE AUDACITY OF MIGRATION
This Saturday evening, March 19, I’ll be presenting the “Audacity of
Migration” at Montpelier’s Unitarian Church (as part of its Clarke
Lecture Series). Reporting from the frontiers of wildlife science, I’ll
reveal secrets of migration from the perspective of a bird (Blackpoll
Warbler), a butterfly (Monarch) and a dragonfly (Wandering Glider). Each
animal makes a mind-blowing journey. We’ll begin at 7PM. For
reservations to the hearty vegetarian supper ($15) at 6PM before
the talk, contact Peter and Mary Beth Watt (229-1246 or

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Learn to shoot nature photos like a pro and support our pals at the
Birds of Vermont Museum — all in the same morning. I’m offering one of
my digital photography seminars as a fundraiser for the museum on
Saturday, April 9, from 9AM-1PM. The fee is $35. Space is limited and
you must register in advance by calling (802) 434-2167 or emailing the
museum at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
(I suspect this workshop will be full soon.) The Birds of Vermont Museum
is one of my most favorite indoor/outdoor places on earth.
BIRDS AND "BUGS"
Meanwhile, I’m teaching three wildlife seminars at the famed Eagle Hill
Institute in Maine this summer. Although the birding course is already
full, you can join the waiting list. We still have room in my seminar on
dragonflies and damselflies, and in the course I’m co-teaching on
butterflies and moths. Your best bet for information on all three of
these seminars is my web site:
