Coastal Bird Migration (w/ KCT)

September 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free
Each year, on their way south after breeding in the far north, over 4 billion birds fly over, feed or rest along the southern Maine coast during as part of an epic phenomena known as migration. Most of the common backyard birds we know move under the cover of darkness, but many shorebirds, waterfowl and birds of prey choose to move by day. Join expert naturalist and bird guide Dan Gardoqui of Lead with Nature  for a September morning of seeking out and learning from migrating birds on the scenic coastline. You’ll learn tips of how and when to best find different types of birds during fall migration and also the rich stories of their lives. This isn’t just a bird identification walk, it’s a chance to share appreciation, wonder and joy for the birds that make our world all the better. (Please note that we’ll be walking out to coastal islands at low tide and will be crossing wet, slippery rocks. We may also have to wade on the way back in shin-deep water – so dress accordingly).
Sponsored & Hosted by Kennebunkport Conservation Trust.
Note: We will meet at the Emmons Preserve (KCT Headquarters) and then carpool to the coastline. Please arrive closer to 1:45pm than 2pm.
