The State of Maine Birds
January 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The health and number of Maine’s bird populations have been in the news quite a bit lately. Nicholas Lund, Maine Audubon’s outreach and network manager, will give a presentation on the topic on Tuesday, January 21, at the Belfast Free Library. The program is titled, “The State of the Birds: Decades of Change.” It is free and open to the public. Hosted by the Belfast Garden Club, the program begins at 2:00 p.m., following a 1:00 members’ business meeting.
According to Lund, bird populations in Maine are continually changing. His talk and slide presentation will cover changes that have occurred during the last few decades, including which species are disappearing and which are increasing. He then will look into the future to identify what the outlook for Maine birds might be. He also will address how gardeners can help protect birds.
