Field Trip: Evergreen Cemetary/Capisic Pond, Portland
May 16 @ 6:30 am - 4:00 pm
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. Last year we found an excellent variety of warblers including a Kentucky. Thrushes are vocal and common at this time of year. Capisic Pond is Portland’s largest freshwater pond and can turn up orioles, waterbirds, warblers and a variety of songbirds at this 18-acre site.
We welcome birders of all skill levels. We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 6:30 am. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Dennis McKenna, at (207) 563-8439 (home) or cell 207-522-2891.
