Field Trip: Scarborough Marsh

July 29 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Scarborough Marsh Eastern Road

*We want to continue to honor the social distancing guidance, which makes carpooling for this longer trip unwise.* Scarborough Marsh encompasses Maine's largest expanse of salt marsh. This trip we will seek those earliest of migrants, shorebirds from the Arctic tundra, and post-breeding wanderers. Owned and managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, the 3,100 acre estuary comprises tidal marsh, salt creeks, freshwater marsh, and uplands. Waterfowl, egrets, herons, glossy ibis and many species of shorebirds depend…

August 21 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Pine Point is where the Scarborough River empties into the Atlantic Ocean. We will meet at the Eastern Road parking area…

Field Trip: Popham Beach

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Popham Beach State Park

*We want to continue to honor the social distancing guidance, which makes carpooling for this longer trip unwise.* The sandy beaches at Popham Beach attract sandpipers and plovers during migration; likely waterbirds include eiders, loons, grebes, scoters, and guillemots; the adjacent salt marsh is habitat for herons and egrets; and, the forest edges often result in some warbler species. We will meet at Popham Beach State Park at 9 am. We welcome birders of all skill levels. We'll enjoy a…
