On Thursday, February 11,  at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, Otter Creek Audubon held our second of three Cabin Fever Lecture series presentation of the winter. OCAS board member Gary Starr showed pictures and told stories from his and his wife Kathy’s most recent birding adventure to Papua New Guinea in search of Birds of Paradise. If you missed this presentation you can view it online here thanks to the production facilities of Middlebury Community Television.
