Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary. We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.
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 into the West Meadow.
Bird walks will start at 7:00AM beginning on April 7th. On April 28th our walk will be held across the street at the Portland Country Club (meet at 11 Foreside Rd, Falmouth, ME).
A list of the most recent bird sightings from Gilsland Farm can be found here: ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L251783
Join us at Scarborough Marsh for a marsh-wide survey of birds to document the numbers of individuals and species.
Join Maine Audubon naturalist Doug Hitchcox to unravel the complexities of sharp-tailed sparrow identification.
We will spend a little time inside looking at photos (birds in the field and while banding, including hybrids!) then go out for a field trip along the Eastern Trail and see them ourselves. This is a can’t miss opportunity for anyone interested in sharp-tailed sparrows, and will give all a special chance to learn more about and view these rare birds.
