Field Trip: Bond Brook (Augusta) & Belgrade Lakes
June 5 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
*It is with disappointment that we have decided to cancel this field trip. We want to continue to honor the social distancing guidance, which makes carpooling for this longer trip unwise. We encourage you to make the trip on your own someday and enjoy the area!*
The Bond Brook Recreation Area, behind the Augusta airport, has featured nesting prairie warblers for years. Of the 116 species seen, highlights include field and grasshopper sparrows, flycatchers, and brown thrashers. 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.
We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am. We welcome birders of all skill levels. 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.
