    A virtual tour of Guide Ron Joseph’s favorite birding destinations
    If you want to head in the right direction for birding this Spring, or perhaps add to your Maine
    life list, this presentation is for you. Retired wildlife biologist Ron Joseph will share his deep
    experience and knowledge of where to go and what you might see.
    Ron retired as a Maine wildlife biologist in 2010 following a 33-year career with the Maine
    Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He specialized
    in migratory bird conservation by restoring habitat on private lands and conducting
    breeding bird surveys. He also studied Canada lynx and bald eagles. Today, Ron leads
    birding trips for Claybrook Mountain Lodge in Highland Plantation. He also writes for Down
    East and Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors magazines.
