Fall Migration in the Caribou Bog Conservation Area (CBCA)
October 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The restored wetlands in Boulder Pond and Black Pond (formerly known as the Taylor Bait Ponds) are now being actively managed to attract shorebirds and waterfowl. Late summer through early fall is the best time to come for shorebirds, as this is the height of their migration through our region. CBCA can often be a good spot for mammal sightings as well.
Enjoy some peak-season leaf peeping as you help us look for late-migrating birds that use the woods and waters of the CBCA to rest and fuel up, before continuing on toward their wintering grounds. We are also likely to find many resident species, birds that are hardy enough to survive the cold Maine winter. It gets easier to spot them when the foliage starts to thin out with colder weather.
