Stanton Bird Club Hosts Photographer Dan Marquis

AUBURN, ME (October 27, 2022) — The Stanton Bird Club is excited to host a talk by well-known local photographer, Dan Marquis as it kicks off it’s 2022-23 lecture series after a two-year hiatus.

Marquis will be sharing photographs and experiences from his visit to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge last year. Described as a ‘birdwatcher’s paradise’, this 57,331-acre refuge was established in 1939 in New Mexico to provide a critical stopover site for migrating waterfowl. The refuge welcomes birdwatchers from around the world as it is well known for the tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes and over 20 species of ducks and geese which regularly spend part of their winters there. In addition to viewing these species, visitors to the refuge are able to see hawks, eagles, owls, and other birds along with a variety of mammals including mule deer, coyotes, javelina and jackrabbits.

The talk will be held on Monday, November 7 from 4-6pm at the Auburn Public Library. The public is welcome. The lecture series is free of charge. We encourage participants to wear masks.

The Stanton Bird Club, a leader in environmental awareness, manages the Thorncrag Nature Sanctuary as well as the Woodbury Nature Sanctuary in Monmouth and Litchfield. More information about other activities of the Club can be found at and on its Facebook page.
