Time: Tue, May 21, 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center
Join bird expert Jeff Cherry for a morning of bird identification. This will be a short-distance, slow walk at Hidden Valley Nature Center to enjoy the birds of woodland and bog habitats. Jeff will share his knowledge of identifying birds by sight and sound, and other topics of interest to the group such as avian breeding biology, eBird, and the Maine Breeding Bird Atlas project.
Jeff Cherry is an antiques dealer who specialized in the study of bird migration as a graduate student, and has since pursued an avid interest in birds and natural history. He keeps detailed records of his daily bird sightings on eBird and is an active contributor to the Maine Breeding Bird Atlas. He and his wife live along the Dyer River near Sheepscot Village.
What to bring: binoculars if you have them, but not absolutely necessary (Jeff will have one extra pair of binoculars and a telescope), appropriate footwear for wet and muddy conditions, and tick deterrent clothing or repellent.
