Birds, Books, and Beers: Cameron Cox, co-author of Seawatching, 10/30


Wed, 10/30, 5:30-8:00pm – see schedule below.
Free (beer available for purchase).

Please join us here at Freeport Wild Bird Supply as we welcome back Cameron Cox, this time to celebrate his new book in the Peterson Reference Guide series, SEAWATCHING: EASTERN WATERBIRDS IN FLIGHT.

But this is not just a “regular” book signing. Instead, this is what we hope will be only the first installment of a new “Birds, Books, and Beers” series in partnership with our good neighbors at the Maine Beer Company! Enjoy some of the finest beer around with some of the finest birders in the world!

Cameron will be at our store from 5:30 to 6:15 pm to sign copies of his new, much-anticipated book that will be of great value to birders in Maine – and we know that a few Maine seawatching locales are covered. We’ll have plenty on-hand for you to purchase. We’ll mingle and chat until it’s time to head over to MBC (two buildings away). There we will enjoy fresh beer (it’s our favorite beer in the state!) in the tasting room – from perennial favorites like Peeper, Lunch, and Moe to single-batch pilots – as Cameron will offer a presentation entitled: “Birds In Flight: Beyond Hawkwatching”. The use of flight style and other in-flight traits is well established for identifying distant raptors, but what about for other birds? The slide show will feature photos from the new book and will cover identification techniques highlighted to improve your ability to recognize not just waterbirds, but distant birds of all types in flight.

No doubt another round of beer will follow. Cameron will have a pen in hand to sign his book and we will have more books for sale at the brewery for those that arrive later. Light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are also available for purchase.

We think you will find this new casual format for our regular author appearances to be a lot of fun, so we hope you will join us!
