Location: Fields Pond, Holden
Beginning in 2018, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (DIFW) is launching the "Maine Bird Atlas" - a new statewide project to document the birds that call Maine home.
This in-depth training will be focused on how to document birds during the upcoming breeding season. It will involve an overview of the project, including background and objectives, explain various ways to participate, and take hands-on look at how to use eBird (the database for collecting Maine Bird Atlas sightings).
We will spend time indoors reviewing materials and procedures, then finish with a short walk outside to practice atlasing. We suggest dressing in layers as the temperature will vary throughout the day. Boots or waterproof footwear is recommended while we are outside. Snacks and drinks will be provided but please bring any additional food items you'll want.
