Field Trip: Pemaquid Point

January 25 @ 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. Don Reimer will lead our trip, and we’ll meet at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse parking lot in Bristol at 8:00 am. Dress warmly!

From the lighthouse, Common Eiders and Black Guillemots are usually observable. Common Loons, Red-necked and Horned Grebes, and scoters are regular in winter and a King Eider is rare but possible. Besides the normal gull species, Bonaparte’s and Laughing Gulls may be present and Black-legged Kittiwakes are seen occasionally. eBird reports that 126 species have been seen at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse!
