Field Trip: Reid State Park
April 25 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
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.
We welcome birders of all skill levels. We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am. 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.
