I just returned from a 4-day trip to Boston. On Friday the 24th, I delivered a lecture at the annual meeting of the Brookline Bird Club. Founded in 1913, this is one of the oldest and largest bird clubs in the country. With close to 1,200 members, turnout was very good - about 180 people. There was a very interactive question and answer session following my 50-minute talk, and I had the chance to catch up with many old friends and meet a few new ones as well.
On Sunday, I visited Hunt's Photo and Video in Melrose (just north of Boston) to kick off a 5-week exhibit of some of my work from my bike trip last year. Excitingly, all of the 14 images are up for auction. They are beautifully mounted and will be shipped to the highest bidder. All of the proceeds go to The Conservation Fund and the American Birding Association. I DO NOT GET A PENNY! This is a great way to help conservation efforts while obtaining a unique photo from what I think was an incredibly journey last year. They would make great gifts for any bird or nature lover. The auction ends on May 29.

Here are a few shots of the galley at Hunt's to give you an idea of how the photos appear.
