The next program in Mid-Coast Audubon’s nature talk series, in partnership with Camden Public Library, will be All About Screech Owls with Jim Wright.

The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20, and will take place virtually via Zoom.

Screech owls are the owl most likely to nest in a backyard, but few people know how to entice them to move in — or how to thwart squirrel interlopers. Wright is author of “The Screech Owl Companion” from Timber Press.

This event is free and open to the public. Wright is also author of “The Real James Bond,” a biography of the author and birdman who summered on Mount Desert Island and fell prey to the world’s most famous case of identity theft. The Wall Street Journal called it “slim and elegant” — like Bond himself. Wright’s other offerings include large-format books about Central America’s largest rainforest, Pennsylvania’s legendary Hawk Mountain, and the New Jersey Meadowlands.
