The Paskamansett Bird Club’s monthly meeting will take place at 7:30 pm on Wednesday,November 9, at the community hall of Friends Meeting, 739 Horseneck Rd. S. Dartmouth.

Myer Bornstein will present images from pelagic trips on both the East and West Coasts of the US, including areas offshore from San Diego, the Perpetua Bank off the coast of Oregon, and locations offshore from Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Myer Bornstein has been interested in pelagic trips for more than 25 years. He has been photographing wildlife on and off for the same period of time, but in the last four years has greatly increased his concentration on photography. Since retiring in January 2010, he has made many trips throughout the United States, watching birds and photographing wildlife.  One of his photographs was voted Best of Show in the Friends of National Wildlife Refuges, Rhode Island, 2011 Photo Contest, and he is one of the 24 Finalists in the Mass Audubon “Picture This: Your Great Outdoors” photo contest. His pictures have been selected by the National Association of Nature Photographers to be shown on their web site “Daily Sampler.”

The talk will illustrate a wide range of species of birds and mammals, as well as other life forms found in the marine environment. Dr. Bornstein will also focus on the pelagic trips themselves, discussing how to prepare, what issues to expect, how to photograph specific species, and how to locate information about trip guides to pelagic regions.Whale Watch _ROT3978 June 02, 2011 NIKON D3SPuffin MSB_8328 NIKON D300S July 03, 2011
