The Natural History Center's own Rich MacDonald is continuing the tradition of this wonderful local resource. Birds of Mount Desert Island will be a completely revised and expanded version of the work of ornithologist James Bond (first and second editions) and local science teacher Ralph “Bud” Long (third and fourth editions). In addition to the traditional species accounts, this new edition will include robust chapters on the history of birding and ornithology on Mount Desert Island and where to find the birds.
