Seabirds and Oceans

Both seabirds and oceans around the world continue to change, sometimes unexpectedly. Tom Robben, HAS member and old-time seabirder, will look backwards and discuss seabirding off of Iceland, California, and Hawaii, in the Benguela Current, in the Kuroshio Current, and feature some of his other pelagic trips since 1960. He will focus on the complex marine ecosystem, and then look forward to some things birders might want to do in the near future.

Natural (and Unnatural) History of the Common Loon  in  Vermont
Common Loons in Vermont have staged a spectacular comeback  during the past 30 years.  The Vermont Loon Recovery Project has worked  with a legion of volunteers and partners to manage and protect this  sensitive bird which was removed from Vermont's endangered species list in  2005.  Yet many threats remain.  Chris Rimmer, Executive Director of the  Vermont Center for Ecostudies, will discuss the fascinating natural  history and behavioral ecology of loons, highlighting conservation issues  and the remarkable trajectory of this species in Vermont.
