Peter Alden begins his lively and beautifully illustrated tale with a speckled egg in a nest.  He then takes us on the eventful journey of a young male scarlet tanager.  We follow it from its hatching in Concord’s Walden Woods, to its over-wintering in Peru and then back again to Concord to seek its future mate.  Alden, a well-traveled ecotourism guide and author of 15 bird and nature books, also co-organized the world’s first Biodiversity Day with Edward O. Wilson. 


 


Peter’s talk is in memory of his friend, Dorothy Storer Long (1920-2012), granddaughter of Robert Treat Paine.
