Witch is it During the Salem Witch Trials, accusers used spectral evidence (dreams or visions) in court to link a member of the community to witchcraft.

Birds of a feather To distract his 29-year-old heartbroken daughter (whom he forbade from marrying the man she loved), Dad paid for Genevieve’ Jones’s publication, “Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio.” Her brother collected the nests and wrote the text and Genevieve created images by drawing on lithographic stones. Sadly, she died of typhoid fever and her mother finished the art work. The rare 19th-century book was donated to Mass Audubon, which presents the exhibit “Nests, Eggs, Heartbreak & Beauty.”
Tue-Sun 1-5 p.m. through Jan. 13. $4, $3 seniors and ages 2-12.
