Derek Lovitch Takes The Midwest By Storm

Derek Lovitch’s recent post on his blog, Maine Birding Field Notes, covered his adventures in the Midwest as he made some appearances, visited some friends, and went on some pretty exciting birding adventures. We just put the start of the blog below, but you can read the whole thing on Lovitch’s blog, or check it out on his Facebook page.


A Mid-Western Road Trip

When the Iowa Ornithologists’ Union invited me out to be the Keynote Speaker for their 2013 Fall Meeting, I jumped at the opportunity to get some birding in in a part of the country that I have not spent very much time exploring.  Add to that a program and book signing at Milwaukee’s Urban Ecology Center, and I had a solid excuse to work on some under-served state lists…and visit some good friends.  Each day, I posted a short synopsis of my travels and birding on my book’s Facebook pagen RTHA
