Spring Bird Walk Series

Get outdoors and enjoy the sights and sounds of spring by spending time with the birds! Join me for 4 weeks of guided bird walks at properties protected by the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust.

April and May mark the wondrous arrival of many migrant birds in southern Maine. From shorebirds, flycatchers, and warblers to sparrows, hawks, and ducks, the bird data we collect will be submitted to eBird and will help inform the KCT's future land management decisions.

Binoculars are recommended, but birding without them is good fun, too! Novice birders welcome.
