Field Trip: Sears Island

May 12 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm

All are welcome! You don’t need to be an Audubon member or have advanced birding skills to join us. We simply hope to instill interest in the natural world through an understanding of how birds live and thrive in our area. We require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

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 main trail is paved.

For those coming from the Damariscotta area who are interested in carpooling, we will meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford parking lot at 6:00 am. Otherwise, we will meet at the Sears Island causeway at 7:30 am. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Gail Presley, at (207) 975-5930.
