Field Trip: Reid State Park

April 23 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

For 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.
********************************************

Reid State Park in Georgetown is characterized by a broad sandy beach, dunes, and coastal woodland. The tidal marsh of the Little River flanks the western border of the park, and the mouth of Sheepscot Bay lies to the east. As many birders will attest, this is a great spot to see Piping Plovers and Least Terns. The saltmarsh along the Little River and behind Mile Beach provide feeding habitat for Common and Least Terns, and numerous species of herons and egrets. Previous trips to this beach have found newly arrived Purple Sandpipers, Red-necked Grebes and all three Scoters. We’ll also be looking for early migrating songbirds in the adjacent forest.

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 will meet at Reid State Park at 9 am. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Will Brussard, at 207-837-9520 (cell).
