Field Trip: Sabattus Pond
October 31 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a visit to Sabattus Pond that will bring fine viewing of waterfowl, often some interesting songbirds, and typically raptors. We’ll depart the Damariscotta Hannaford at 7:30 am. We typically stop at several sites around the pond to view the whole pond.
Sabattus Pond is remarkable in autumn when water levels draw down, exposing extensive mud flats and large concentrations of migrating waterfowl show up. From October until freeze-up, regulars include Mallards, American Black Ducks, Ruddy Ducks, Hooded Mergansers, Common Goldeneye, Green-winged Teals, American Wigeons, Northern Pintails, Ring-necked Ducks, both species of scaup, and American Coots. Even saltwater migrants are possible.
