Audubon speaker

BRUNSWICK – Merrymeeting Chapter, Maine Audubon, will present Louis Bevier on “Ivory-billed or Pileated?,” an analysis and interpretation of the video recording that was given as conclusive evidence on the existence of the ivory-billed Woodpecker, on Tuesday, Nov. 28, in the Curtis Memorial Library Community Room.

Bevier began watching birds at age 9 when his parents “forced” him to take a class on birding at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. Now a research associate at Colby College and a trip leader for Field Guides, Bevier gained a touch of notoriety this past spring when he joined with David Sibley and others to write a critique of the evidence supporting the rediscovery of the ivory-billed woodpecker.

The 7 p.m. program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Derek Lovitch at 846-8002.
