Summer Course - Birding in Maine
Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 11:15am to Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 5:15pm
Grab some binoculars and let’s head out! From Oystercatchers to Ospreys and Puffins to Peregrine Falcons, Maine has more than its share of signature avian wildlife, and whether you’re in Acadia National Park or the Rangely Lakes Region, the landscape is as gorgeous as the plumage. Join seasoned wildlife biologist Brent Bibles on a comprehensive tour of some of the many birding hotspots in Maine including a Puffin and seabird tour of Penobscot Bay. Participants will also get an introduction to avian-related wildlife techniques including bird banding and mist-netting. If you have your own set of binoculars, bring them--if you need to borrow some, we’ll have extras.
