Field Trip: Evergreen Cemetary/Capisic Pond, Portland

May 21 @ 7:30 am - 2:30 pm

All are welcome! You don’t need to be an Audubon member or have advanced birding skills to join us. We simply hope to instill interest in the natural world through an understanding of how birds live and thrive in our area. We require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
********************************************

Evergreen Cemetary and its surrounding 100-acre forest in Portland is a warbler haven in May, with owls, hawks, ducks, and herons possible at the ponds. We will continue to seek spring migrants at this, historically, one of our most successful field trips. Thrushes are vocal and common at this time of year. Capisic Pond is Portland’s largest freshwater pond and can turn up two species of orioles, waterbirds, warblers and a variety of songbirds at this 18-acre site. In 2021, we found an excellent variety of warblers including a Blackpolls.

For those coming from the north who are interested in carpooling, we will meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford parking lot at 6:15 am. Otherwise, we will meet at the back parking area at Evergreen Cemetery, near the north end of the duck pond (dropped pin on Google Maps), at 7:30 am. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Lew Purinton, at 207-549-5257 (home) or cell 207-215-1913.
