August 23, 2019 – You’re invited to hear the amazing story of the Osprey’s worldwide revival, as told by the pre-eminent Osprey researcher Alan F. Poole, at the Connecticut Audubon Society’s 2019 Annual Meeting, October 7, 7 p.m., at the Pequot Library in Southport.

Poole is the author of the recently-published Ospreys: The Revival of a Global Raptor (Johns Hopkins University Press). His presentation will include dazzling photos of Ospreys and their habitats, and he’ll sketch some of the colorful characters who have helped Ospreys recover from near-extinction.

Connecticut Audubon members are well aware of the birds’ success here in the state, where the 300 volunteers of the Osprey Nation citizen science program have documented 600 nests.

The Pequot Library, is at 720 Pequot Ave., Southport.

All Connecticut Audubon members are invited. Members will vote on nominations for Connecticut Audubon’s Board of Directors and for officers of the board; and on proposed changes to the by-laws.

The annual Dave Engelman Volunteer Benchmark Awards will also be presented.

A resident of Westport, Massachusetts, Poole is an associate of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and was editor of the Birds of North America life history series for 22 years.

Poole has been studying Ospreys for over 35 years. Ospreys: The Revival of a Global Raptor is his second book on the species. His book will be for sale and his talk will be followed by a book-signing.

The meeting is free but we’d appreciate it if you’d RSVP, to give us an idea of how many people will be there. Thank you!
