February 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Thursday, February 20th at 7:00 p.m. at the Loon Center in Moultonborough, the Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program on the Birds and Mammals of Panama.
Scott Spangenberg will present a program on birds, some common mammals (including several species of monkeys), and other wildlife of Panama seen on a self-directed tour that he and his wife took in 2019 with four friends. The program will include wildlife from locations surrounding the Panama Canopy Tower, (including the world famous Semaphore Road, the Ammo Dump Ponds, and Pipeline Road), Canopy Lodge, Lake Gatun on the Panama Canal, and Panama City.
Scott, a software architect and data scientist by profession, has a lifelong interest in wildlife. While his interest in birds had already sparked at age three, this interest intensified while working on photographs for his ornithology merit badge in Boy Scouts, exploded when he saw warblers at close range through binoculars, and soared further when participated in his first hawk watch in 1974. Scott is a past trip leader and past president of the Monadnock Chapter of NH Audubon. Birding and photography have now been passions for several decades.
The Loon Center is located on Lee’s Mill Road; follow the signs on Blake Road from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School, or from Rte. 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn left on Lee’s Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.
