CAPTION: Associate Professor Noah Perlut of the University of New England handles an owl that was donated to the school’s Department of Environmental Studies. Above, birds large and small – like this hummingbird – are preserved through a lesser known program at UNE that teaches students how to preserve specimens. The department accepts specimen donations from area wildlife organizations and the public. MOLLY LOVELL-KEELY/Biddeford-Saco-OOB Courier
