Field Trip: Pemaquid Point

January 27 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

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 Atlantic ocean, which explains why it is such a great place for viewing seabirds. From the lighthouse, expect to see Great Cormorants, Black Guillemots, Common Eiders and Longtailed Ducks. Previous trips have yielded Razorbills, Purple Sandpipers, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Iceland Gulls. eBird reports that 191 species have been seen at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse!

Jeff Cherry and Mael Glon will lead our trip, and 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’ll meet at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse parking lot in Bristol at 8:00 am. There may be a parking fee. Participants should dress for cold and windy weather. Winter precipitation will result in cancellation. For more information, please call Jeff Cherry, at (914) 489-7870.
