    Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary.  We will walk the property looking for birds, wildlife and plants. Bring your binoculars and a field guide if you have one. Please dress to be comfortable outside for two hours.

    We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading out.

    There will be no bird walk on Thursday, November 27th. Walks beginning on December 4th will start at 8:00am.

  • Portland Patches: Back Cove
    • Tuesday Jan 13, 2015 8:00 am – 10:00 am
    • Location: Back Cove, Portland
    • Members: $10 Non-members: $15

    Every birder should have a patch. A birding patch is a place a birdwatcher can visit regularly, know intimately, and enjoy deeply. Portland has many accessible locations that are great for birding throughout the year and we can introduce you to them.

    Back Cove offers a variety of birds to enjoy, especially in the winter: ducks, gulls, and this year has a good chance for a Snowy Owl! Not a bad way to start a patch list.

    Meet our Staff Naturalist, Doug Hitchcox, in the parking lot off Preble Street in Portland (see the map link above). From here you’ll bird the Back Cove area and see what amazing birds occur so close to a bustling city.
