Field Trip: Local Damariscotta Area Bird Walk
April 9 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Trip Leader, Dennis McKenna, as we seek early migrants in two great birding spots near Damarsicotta. At the Great Salt Bay Farm we’ll walk the meadow looking for savannah sparrows and bobolinks, scan the pond for ducks and geese, investigate the forest edges for early migrating warblers and songbirds, and then scan the Great Salt Bay for gulls, ducks, osprey and kingfishers. To start the day, we’ll meet at 7:00 AM at the Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust parking lot at 110 Belvedere Road.
Visiting Pemaquid Point is like going out to sea, but without a boat. The peninsula is long and relatively narrow, extending well out in the ocean, which explains why it is such a great place for viewing seabirds. At this time of year we’ll also be looking for migrating passerines.
We welcome birders of all skill levels. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Dennis McKenna at (207) 563-8439 (home) or cell 207-522-2891.
