Field Trip: Sears Island

May 10 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Please note new meeting time – 8 am
Mid-Coast Audubon, emerging from our Covid-dictated inactivity, has decided to recommence spring birding field trips in 2021. There will be safety measures, at least initially. They are as follows:

  • The previously mandated social distancing and mask wearing is required for all attendees.
  • There will be no carpooling unless those wishing to do so have all been fully vaccinated. We will not meet at a central point and carpool to the field trip site, instead will meet at the site.
  • Those participants that have a scope should bring it because sharing of scopes is discouraged.

We will not be eating at restaurants, so trip participants should bring a lunch for all-day trips. In case of inclement weather, people interested in attending should call 207-975-5930 to find out if the trip is cancelled.

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 meet at the Sears Island causeway at 7 am. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Gail Presley, at (207) 975-5930.
