These aquamarine-eyed beauties were very nearly made extinct from the use of the pesticide DDT and from hunting. DDT wreaked havoc on avian creatures nationwide and since its ban, the Double-crested Cormorant has made an extraordinary recovery, so much so, that some communities spend a great deal of time and expense planning how to kill, or cull, these remarkable birds.

Cape Ann TV Lunch & Learn Series: “Deep Diving Into Your Camera’s Menu”
Cape Ann TV’s Lunch & Learn Series continues on Thursday January 19, 2016
at 12pm with Professional Video Producer, Ted Reed.
Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s time to start on that New Year’s
resolution to do more video! In support of that, our next Lunch and Learn
at Cape Ann TV will concentrate on getting the most out of your video
camera with something you already have—its menu of controls.
Even the most basic camcorders have ways of adjusting exposure, focus and
color manually, so whether you just got a new camera, or want to find out
more about one you’ve had for a while, bring it in at noontime on Thursday
January 19 to Cape Ann TV’s latest Lunch and Learn workshop. Emmy
award-winning director Ted Reed will answer your questions and give you a
head start at shooting the videos you’ve always wanted to make.
