Thursday, June 27 was Mike Windsor’s last time to lead a bird walk for Maine Audubon in his official capacity. Mike has left Maine Audubon for a position at the Saco Library where he will cultivate another passion! We wish him the best.

We will have no bird walk this week due to the July 4th holiday. Our Gilsland Farm Thursday morning bird walks continue next week at the usual time, July 11 with Doug Hitchcox as the leader. Doug is a well known member of the Maine birding community and compiler of the Rare Bird Alert. Doug is also leading 7 a.m. Wednesdays at Scarborough Marsh bird walks.
