Local author, photographer and ornithologist Don Reimer will share photos and discuss his new book “Seen Anything Good?” in an online webinar hosted by the Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday August 3 at noon.
âWhen meeting other birders in the field, a questioning expression is commonly heard: ‘Did you see something good? “, Writes Reimer. âThat, of course, depends on our expectations of the day and our personal definitions of what constitutes a ‘good’ bird. Blue jays are fairly common here in Maine, but are said to be a hotline bird in California. Reimer will relay knowledge and stories from six decades of birdwatching in Maine, about his new book and beyond in this engaging and fun presentation, and answer audience questions about birding.
Reimer is a longtime ornithologist and photographer residing in Warren. A board member of the Midcoast Audubon Society, he has led field trips for local environmental organizations and the American Birding Association’s National Convention. He is a member of the board of directors of the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in Rockland.
