Fall Migration in Essex Woods
September 25 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 amFree
In late summer and early fall, it’s not unusual to spot transient great egrets and migrating shorebirds at Essex Woods. We will look for multiple species of ducks, green and great blue herons, and pied-billed grebes in the marsh, and check the surrounding trees and shrubs for lingering neotropical songbirds and year-round residents. This repeats a walk on August 28. It’s is a great opportunity to see and compare the range of different species that rely on Essex Woods as a stopover in their annual post-breeding migration through the Bangor region.
Leader: Steve Mierzykowski
Directions: Meet at the entrance to Essex Woods on Garden Way, off Drew Lane in Bangor. Please show consideration for neighborhood residents by parking in the adjacent business parking lot (largely unoccupied on weekends) at the corner of Stillwater Avenue and Drew Lane, and not on the shoulder of Garden Way.
