We will be birdwatching at the stunningly beautiful Biddeford Pool for exciting migrant and coastal birds. I will lead you to birding hotspots and view points for locating, observing, and identifying the diverse birds in the area. I will let you identify the birds yourself, or provide identification tips or answers depending on your preference. Identification by birdsong and call lessons is also offered. We will attempt to build a large list of species that we observe and this list will be submitted to the eBird database for common and scientific usage.
