Field Trip: Evergreen Cemetary/Capisic Pond, Portland

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

For 2022, we require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Participants are welcome to arrange carpooling among themselves, but we will not meet at a central location beforehand. The trip leader will meet participants at the actual trip site.

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.

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 will meet at the back parking area at Evergreen Cemetary, near the turtle pond, at 7:30 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.
