SPRING MIGRATION ON INLAND WATERS

April 21 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Sunday, April 21, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Leaders:  Bob Milardo, Sharon Wilson Barker, and Shane Barker

FREE

Join us for a spring migration tour to productive birding hotspots in central Maine, with a focus on species that rest and refuel on Maine’s ponds, rivers, and lakes.  We will make multiple stops including Plymouth Pond, Sebasticook Lake-Durham Bridge, Sprague’s Mill, and Corinna Bog/Corundel Lake.  We expect to spot a wide variety of waterfowl and wading birds, shorebirds heading toward their sub-Arctic breeding grounds, and plenty of other resident and migratory species. Bring binoculars and/or camera, and a spotting scope if you have one; the guides will also share theirs with participants. Meet at the commuter Park-and-Ride lot east of I-95 at Exit 174 (Carmel-Newburgh), directly across from the Dysarts convenience store.  PLEASE NOTE: parking along the route is very limited, so carpooling  is a must.
