Field Trip: Pemaquid Point

May 25 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Mid-Coast Audubon, emerging from our Covid-dictated inactivity, has decided to recommence spring birding field trips in 2021. There will be safety measures, at least initially. They are as follows:

  • The previously mandated social distancing and mask wearing may be required for all attendees.
  • There will be no carpooling unless those wishing to do so have all been fully vaccinated. We will not meet at a central point and carpool to the field trip site, instead will meet at the site.
  • Those participants that have a scope should bring it because sharing of scopes is discouraged.

We will not be eating at restaurants, so trip participants should bring a lunch for all-day trips. In case of inclement weather, people interested in attending should call 207-563-8439 to find out if the trip is cancelled.

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. Dennis McKenna will lead our trip, and we’ll meet at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse parking lot in Bristol at 7:00 am. There is a parking fee.

From the lighthouse, Common Eiders and Black Guillemots are usually observable. We’ll look for late season migrants such as Common Loons, Red-necked and Horned Grebes, scoters, and songbirds stopping to rest such as a wide variety of warblers. 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, Dennis McKenna, at 207-563-8439 (home) or cell 207-522-2891.
