Spring Birding at Otter Brook

2021 Birding Walk with Nat Wheelwright (photo by Ed Robinson)

Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15 from 8-9:30 a.m. at Otter Brook Preserve. Event capped at 15 participants. Advance registration is required. This event filled very quickly! Email Julia at director@hhltmaine.org to be placed on the waiting list.

Spring is a wonderful time for birding as the migrants return and males begin to sing in earnest, defending their territories and attracting mates. Join naturalist and birder Nat Wheelwright at Otter Brook Preserve to see how many birds you can identify using your eyes and ears. With practice, it is easy to learn to recognize different species and even something about the individual birds.

Nat Wheelwright, Bowdoin Biology Professor Emeritus, Harpswell resident, and co-author of The Naturalist’s Notebook, will lead this field trip. Please wear appropriate footwear for walking and bring binoculars, if you have (or can borrow) them.

This event is part of the Birding Extravaganza, a collaborative partnership of Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, Kennebec Estuary Land Trust, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and Harpswell Heritage Land Trust. Check our partners’ websites for more great birding events!
