  • Portland Patches: Eastern Promenade

    • Location: Eastern Promenade, 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.

    The microhabitats along Portland’s East End can support a surprising amount of avian diversity. Join our staff naturalist, Doug Hitchcox, for a walk around the Eastern Promenade to identify ducks, gulls, songbirds and hopefully some out-of-range rarities that often frequent this area in the fall.
