Mark Lynch is a teacher and trip leader for Mass Audubon’s Broad Meadow Brook Sanctuary in Worcester. He was a founding member of the Massachusetts Avian Records Committee, and is currently the book review editor for the journal Bird Observer, with book reviews in every
issue. Mark was one of the regional editors for the Bird Finding Guide to Western Massachusetts, writing several chapters, including locations in the southern Berkshires and about Monson, the Quabbin, and the Brookfields.
Sheila Carroll has been a devoted birder and photographer for more than 35 years, traveling to such places as Tierra del Fuego and Lord Howe Island to observe and photograph birds. Sheila does the photography for Mark’s birding classes and programs and co-leads trips with him for Broad Meadow Brook. (Besides birds, Sheila is passionate about finding, photographing, and identifying odonates―dragonflies and damselflies.)

An exhibit of photographs of birds by Boxborough Birder photographers will also be on display at the library throughout the month of May.
