Mark Obmascik to Kick Off 12th Annual Ladd Marsh Bird Festival

Mark Obmascik will be the featured speaker to kick off the 12th annual Ladd Marsh Bird Festival May 19, 2017. As some will know, Mark is the author of The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession (Simon and Schuster 2004). You may also be familiar with the film adaptation of The Big Year starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. Mark’s presentation will be a mix of The Big Year and his second book, Halfway to Heaven: My White-knuckled – and Knuckleheaded – Quest for the Rocky Mountain High (Simon and Schuster 2009). This promises to be a very entertaining presentation and an excellent beginning for the Ladd Marsh Bird Festival. We will add information on field trips and other details as they become available to the Bird Festival section of this web site.Big Year cover_
