Bird Feeding Celebration

Price not
available
Calendar Next session starts Jan 26, 2019 at 10 am

Join Maine Audubon in celebrating National Bird Feeding month!

Transform your backyard into a bird sanctuary with the help of The Nature Store.

Offering food and water nurtures birds through the harsh winter, and allows us the chance to observe them up close. This is also an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to the natural world right outside our windows. Join us for tips on how!

We will be offering informal talks throughout the day.

Staff will be on hand to answer your questions. 

 

Let's Go Birding

$30

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Dec 5, 2018 at 8 am

Members: $20, Nonmembers: $30

Join us on a "leader's choice" van trip to birding locations in southern Maine. The exact destination hasn't been chosen yet but we will take advantage of recently reported rarities or hotspots that will make our morning most productive.

We will leave Gilsland Farm in Falmouth at 8 am and plan to be back around 11 am but we ask that people are flexible with the return time. We make stops for bathrooms as needed, which can add time to the trip, and sometimes the birding is too good to wrap up on time!

Mexico: Oaxaca Birding Trip

Mexico: Oaxaca Birding Trip

$2,475

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Mar 16, 2019

Escape Maine’s winter doldrums on a week-long tour with Field Guides Inc and Maine Audubon to Oaxaca, Mexico. This tour offers excellent birding in an area of Mexico with a high concentration of endemic species around a city with a rich archaeological and cultural heritage. The city is located at the crossroads of several major biogeographic regions of Mexico, and its bird life is influenced by all of these. Among the resultant mixture are two dozen species endemic to Mexico, including West Mexican Chachalaca, Boucard's and Gray-barred wrens, Dusky and Beautiful hummingbirds, Bridled and Oaxaca sparrows, Gray-breasted Woodpecker, Russet Nightingale-Thrush, Red Warbler, and Slaty and Dwarf vireos. We'll look to see them against Oaxaca's rich backdrop of culture and ruins.

Nature Tuesday Group

with Davida Sky

Calendar Next session starts Nov 27, 2018 at 1:30 pm

Next meeting: November 27, 1:30-3 pm

Our next Nature Tuesday is on November the 27, 1:30 -3:00 at Audubon in Falmouth.  (Nature Tuesday is the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.)

We will be identifying winter trees. It is amazing the number of clues available to us without the presence of leaves.  The bark, the twigs, the buds, what’s growing on the tree.  I love this topic and we will do it rain or shine.

Bring your 10X and binoculars and dress for the weather.  We will do some inside learning and hopefully spend most of our time outdoors.

See you then, Davida 776-1876 and Kiya

 

New Year, New Birds

$40

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Jan 12, 2019 at 8 am

Members: $30, Nonmembers: $40

Kick off the year with a van trip to see as many FOY (First of Year) birds we can see. The route is yet to be determined but will likely explore the coast of York and Cumberland Counties or target lingering rarities.

We will leave Gilsland Farm in Falmouth at 8:00AM and plan to be back around 1:00PM but we ask that people are flexible with the return time. We make stops for bathrooms as needed, which can add time to the trip, and sometimes the birding is too good to wrap up on time!

Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.

We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow. Walks last approximately 2 hours.
