Researcher Will Speak

About Osprey on Island

Rob Bierregaard began researching osprey on the Vineyard in 1969. Since then, he has been investigating the habits and migrations of these birds on the Island and beyond.

He will share his passion at a free lecture at the Oak Bluffs library on Tuesday, July 29, at 6:30 p.m.

Since June 2000, in collaboration with Mark Martell of The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, Mr. Bierregaard has put satellite transmitters on osprey to track their travels.

The lecture is free, but donations will be accepted to benefit Mass Audubon’s Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary in Edgartown. More information is available by calling 508-627-4850.
