Field Trip: Belgrade Lakes & Bond Brook (Augusta)

June 4 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 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.
********************************************

A visit to Belgrade Lakes offers a mix of fresh water and northern hardwood forest species with highlights including Black Terns, Sandhill Cranes, Purple Martins, and many warbler species. For those coming from the Damariscotta area who are interested in carpooling, we will meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford parking lot at 6:45 am. Otherwise, meet at the Messalonskee Lake Boat Ramp on Route 27 at 8:00 AM. If you see Hammond Lumber on the left going north you have gone 300-400 yards too far.

The Bond Brook Recreation Area, behind the Augusta airport, has featured nesting Prairie Warblers for years. Of the 116 species seen at this site, highlights include Field and Grasshopper Sparrows, flycatchers, and Brown Thrashers.

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.
