Field Trip: Pemaquid Point

January 22, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 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.

For early 2022, we require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Participants are welcome to arrange carpooling among themselves, but we will not meet at a central location beforehand. The trip leader will meet participants at the actual trip site.
********************************************

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. There may be a parking fee. Participants should dress for cold and windy weather. Winter precipitation will result in cancellation.

From the lighthouse, expect to see Great Cormorants, Black Guillemots, Common Eiders and Longtailed Ducks. Previous trips have yielded Razorbills, Purple Sandpipers, Rough-legged Hawks, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Iceland Gulls. eBird reports that 126 species have been seen at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse! For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Don Reimer, at (207) 273-3146 (home) or cell (207) 701-1063.
