Field Trip: Sabattus Pond

November 2 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for a visit to Sabattus Pond as we look over the extensive flocks of south-bound ducks. Sabattus Pond is remarkable in autumn when water levels draw down, exposing extensive mud flats and attracting large concentrations of migrating waterfowl. 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. We often see some interesting songbirds, and typically raptors.

We’ll meet at the boat ramp at the south end at 8 am (coordinates: 44.12525, -70.10616). For those wishing to carpool, we’ll depart the Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am. We typically stop at several sites around the pond to view the whole pond. Participants should dress warmly.

For questions, please call trip leader Will Broussard at (207) 837-9520. To sign up, please send an email to Mael Glon (midcoastfieldtrips@maineaudubon.org) with your name and phone number.
