Mid-Coast Audubon Series: Summering with the Vultures, with Don Reimer

Thursday, October 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

The library will host Mid-Coast Audubon Board member and local bird expert/author Don Reimer for a lively Zoom pictorial portrait recounting his monitoring of a turkey vulture pair raising their chicks from egg through fledged independence. The online talk will trace detailed weekly progress at the nest site throughout the 2019 summer nesting season, with updates from 2020.

This will be a free online presentation. To register for the event, please email Julia Pierce (jpierce@librarycamden.org) to request the Zoom login info.

Maine’s turkey vulture population has expanded immensely since the state’s first nesting pair was discovered in the Camden Hills in 1982. As part of the Maine Bird Atlas update project, Don has been documenting nesting birds in Maine for the last 3 years. He was delighted to be able to confirm a successful vulture nesting attempt in 2019. We’re anxious to hear how the 2020 nesting season went.

Don Reimer is a lifelong birder and photographer who lives in Warren. He has led field excursions for local environmental organizations and the American Birding Association National Convention. He is a Board Member of the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in Rockland, and has participated in many citizen science projects. His bimonthly column “Birding with Don Reimer” appears in the Free Press. He recently published a compilation of his columns and photographs titled See Anything Good? which is available at http://donreimerbirder.com/.
