Inspired by Nature: Round the World Birding with Becky Marvil
November 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Co-sponsored by Merrymeeting Audubon and the Cathance River Education Alliance.
Please Note Location: Curtis Memorial Library, Morrell Room, Brunswick.
In the summer of 2015, Becky Marvil spent 30 days with her husband, Josh (a pilot), and two other couples traveling around the world in a private plane. From the volcanic islands of the Azores to the 106-degree heat of the Oman to the chilly, drizzly coast of Alaska, Becky will share her photos and stories of bird species from around the globe.
Their route took them from the U.S. to Newfoundland, the Azores, Turkey, Oman, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Taiwan, Russia, and Alaska. In addition to sightseeing and learning about different cultures, she enjoyed focusing on the birds, photographing and videotaping many species and learning about regional family variations and similarities
from one stop to the next.
Becky Marvil lives with her family in Yarmouth, Maine. She has a background in Biology, Ornithology, and Computer Science and runs her own computer programming/webpage design business. She has been the Executive Director of the Acadia Birding Festival for 8 years, combining her knowledge of webpage design, organizational skills, and love of birding. She is also the Secretary for the Maine Bird Records Committee, a eBird Hotspot monitor for Maine, and just recently became a regional coordinator for the Maine Breeding and Wintering Bird Atlas. During her free time, she helps with local bird surveys, chases after rarities, and loves to travel and enjoy birds in new locations.
