James Bond -- ornithologist, author of the classic "Birds of the West Indies" and world's most famous identity-theft victim -- spent his summers on Mt. Desert Island his entire life. What's more, he and his uncle wrote the classic field guide to the birds of Mt. Desert nearly eight decades ago. Visit the author's blog
Bond also helped his uncle -- Carroll Sargent Tyson -- create the most famous set of bird prints in Maine, and you can see them up close at this illustrated talk at the Wendell Gilley Carving Museum in Southwest Harbor. Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" is involved as well (you won't believe how). Jim Wright, the author of the new lavishly illustrated biography, "The Real James Bond," will tell all about Bond, Tyson, the birds, the books, the illustrations, avian spies and several Mt. Desert Island locales.
