Description: Rob Bierregaard will share his experience tracking and researching ospreys, a bird of prey species that has made a significant comeback since their mid-century decline. Rob will outline how technological advances have answered mysteries about ospreys’ 4,000-mile migrations and breeding patterns. He has also written a children’s book, Belle’s Journey, about his favorite osprey and will talk about his journey as a first-time author. This Wyncote Audubon Society meeting is open to the public in partnership with Upper Dublin Library.
