Spring migration offers a unique time for people interested in birds. With millions flooding into Western Maine, there is an opportunity to locate and identify more new bird species than you will see at any other time of the year. Plus, getting out before leaves have fully budded means many birds are more visible than later in the summer.
Join us at Valentine Farm Conservation Center for another in our Birding Series on May 3rd at 7:00. Don’t worry if you haven’t attended other classes. We will review tips and techniques to help you better identify the birds you see. A special focus will be given to the birds which are likely to be seen at this time of year. Many of these are colorful warblers, songsters like those in the thrush family and many others.
The goal is to prepare you for a birding walk which we will take at Valentine Farm Saturday May 4th at 8:00 a.m. The morning walk will provide field observations where you will practice the techniques from class.
