AUBURN – The Stanton Bird Club will feature the Galapagos Islands at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 3, at a meeting at the High Street Congregational Church, Pleasant Street.

Speaker Loring Danforth, professor of anthropology at Bates College, will present a slide show and talk about his trip to the Galapagos Islands in June. Danforth will share information on the general ecology of the islands and the natural history of the wildlife there, especially the bird life.

As an active member of the Stanton Bird Club, he is an enthusiastic birdwatcher. Highlights of his trip included the courting rituals and mating behavior of the Frigatebird and Waved Albatross.

The Stanton Bird Club is a conservation organization offering monthly natural history programs and field trips throughout the state free. The club welcomes new members whose dues help to provide land stewardship at three sanctuaries owned and managed by the club in Lewiston and Monmouth.
