Join trip leaders Norm Famous, Bob Duchesne, and Sandi Duchesne for a seaborne exploration of the island archipelago between Roque Bluffs and Jonesport. We will cruise slowly in a small boat past flocks of common winter seabirds, helping novices improve their winter coastal birding skills while also helping Norm to conduct a seabird census in the sheltered waters around the islands. We will also get the chance to land and hike on a scenic, family-owned island that is off-limits to the general public. Participants have the option of traveling via 15-passenger van, departing from FPAC at 6:30 a.m., or driving to the pier in Roque Bluffs prior to the boat’s departure time of 8:45 a.m. We expect to return to FPAC around 6:00 p.m. Don’t delay in signing up; this trip is limited to just 12 participants, and it usually fills very fast! Wear warm layered clothing, and bring a brown-bag lunch to eat on the island. Call FPAC at 989-2591 to register. We will call you the night before if the boat captain cancels the trip due to bad weather.
