Field Trip: Sears Island
May 9 @ 6:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join us as we seek spring migrants at this mid-coast birding hotspot in Searsport. During spring migration, many species rest and feed on the island during their long northbound trip. Warblers galore! Some are here to stay (Chestnut-sided, Black and White, Black-throated Green, Black-throated Blue, Yellow-rumped, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart) and some have farther to go (Wilson’s, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll). Other songbirds include Scarlet Tanager, thrushes, flycatchers, and White-throated Sparrow.
The site is easy to navigate as the trails are mostly paved. We welcome birders of all skill levels. We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 6:30 am sharp, OR Belfast Reny’s at 7:45 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.
