      "The Uncommon Loon – A Triumph of Evolution" with Dr. Paul Spitzer

      Conservation biologist and ornithological expert Dr. Paul Spitzer has studied the non-breeding biology of the Common Loon, Gavia immer , on all three American saltwater coasts since 1988. Dr. Spitzer will share fascinating information about one of our most extraordinary birds, a bird whose history stretches back over 60 million years. With wings that can stretch 50 inches tip to tip and a body over 28 inches long, this beautiful large solitary bird with its haunting call captures the imagination as little else can. Growing up in the Connecticut River estuary of New England Dr. Paul Spitzer was inspired and encouraged by Roger Tory Petersen. He earned his PhD. at Cornell University in 1980 after a 10-year osprey population study.
