||As an icon of the north-country,
the Loon has created magic for all who have enjoyed his antics and
that magical “call of the wild”. I will lectures about
the life history of the Loon, and shares many stunning images. Having
made many trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of northern Minnesota,
I have captured the iconic images of a female loon, on the nest,
with youngsters riding on her back, the male feeding the young,
and many other interesting behaviors. Look forward to an exciting
and educational presentation!

||Voyage to the
Bottom of the World

Antarctic seas aboard the Dutch ice-breaker Ortelius, an expedition-ship,visiting
the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, and the Antarctic Peninsula.
This adventure will place you among the nesting albatross and countless
water-birds of the Falklands, along with the incredible King Penguin
colonies of South Georgia Island, each numbering into the hundreds
of thousands. And you will see and learn about the fur seals and
gigantic elephant seals that rule South Georgia’s beaches.
The expedition's final destination will place you among the colorful
and astoundingly beautiful ice formations of the Antarctic Peninsula
as the author and crew make their way through seemingly endless
fields of icebergs, via small zodiac landing craft, where whales
abound and Leopard Seals lurk among the ice floes. A true adventure
to the bottom of the world!
